I don't like that Finder shows me "All My Files":

Finder sows some useless stuff

It also delays Finder start a little.

How can I make Finder start in some different place (not in "All My Flies")? Can finder start in my home directory ~ or anywhere here:

You can change this in Finder > Preferences > General > New Finder windows show. I've set mine to my home directory, but you can also choose Other... and set a different directory

  • thank you for this tip, it's been driving me nuts for a while, haha! Much appreciated!
