Change Default “New Finder Window” Folder. Easy.

Just about every time I open Finder on my Mini, I end up navigating to the same folder on my external “Video” drive. It’s the folder with all my newest Torrent downloads from uTorrent.

Today I realized that there has got to be a more efficient way — a way to have Finder automatically open new windows to my new downloads folder, instead of having to navigate there manually dozens of times everyday. Sure enough, there is — and the solution is only a few click away.

Open Finder. Click “Finder” (top left of your display). Click “Preferences” – Under the “General” tab, change “New Finder windows open:” to any folder you like. Easy.
