I have a trivial but annoying finder bug and I'm wondering if I am the only one?

If I hit command-shift-N in Finder to create a new folder it should automatically highlight the default name untitled folder ready for renaming. It works as expected in icon and list views but not column view which is really annoying because I use column view all the time. I am running OS X 10.8.4 (12E55).


It works normally on my installation of 10.8.4, or ⇧⌘N also selects the untitled folder in column view.

You could try temporarily moving ~/Library/Preferences/com.apple.finder.plist somewhere else and relaunching Finder. Or quit background applications or try it on different account.

  • Trashing the .plis file did the trick, thanks Lauri – Visitor82 Jun 14 '13 at 20:58
