Finder is the native file manager on macOS which is running pretty much all the time once you log in to your system. It allows users to organize and locate all the files that are stored on their Macs. By default, launching the Finder window shows you all the recent files, but this can be changed if necessary.
Not everyone wants to see the most recent files upon clicking the Finder icon that’s located on the Dock. People have their own preferences and some may want to open a specific folder or directory to quickly access a specific set of files. For those who need it, Apple gives the option to change the default folder that Finder opens into. This setting can be accessed from Finder preferences.
If you’re fairly new to the macOS ecosystem, you may have trouble figuring this out by yourself, but we’re here to help. In this article, we’ll show you how easy it is to set or change the Finder default folder in macOS.
