Learn how to set what a new Finder window shows when first opened on the Mac.

In this lesson for the Mac, I show you how to set what a new Finder window opens to. By default, when you open a new Finder window, it shows you your recent files and doesn’t open to a specific folder. You can change this to open to a folder, such as your user folder instead of your recent items. See how to change what a new Finder window opens to in this lesson for the Mac.
