I do a lot of repetitive tasks on a daily basis such as uploading using the Finder…. I keep on uploading from the same directory (Downloads)
Can I expect to return to the last directory opened when I open the Finder?
If so, why does it sometimes default to “Documents-icloud” ? What makes it do it? There is no pattern that I can see, to cause it to open “Documents-icloud” instead of the usual “Downloads” directory.
Go to Finder, Preferences, General. There is a setting for New Finder Windows Show. Set it to anything you want.
Of course you can also place frequently-used folders in the Finder sidebar as well as the Dock to make them easy to access. Or, just never close the Finder window. I have a Finder window always open with 5 tabs to the places I need at all times.
Thanks Gary........Good advice as always
