I'm trying to find out why whenever I open up the first Finder window (I press on the Finder icon and there is no previously open Finder window), my ~/.ssh folder is shown instead of my home folder which is configured on the "New Finder windows show" preference.
I thought this was related to showing/hiding hidden folders but I've tried changing those settings and it doesn't seem to make a difference.
Other things I've tried:
- If I rename my .ssh folder to something else, for example .ssh2, the first Finder window opens my home folder, not .ssh2. As soon as I rename it back to .ssh I have that folder open again.
- I tried also creating a new folder, .ssh but same behaviour. The newly created directory is opened with the first Finder window.
Note when I ask for a New Finder Window I do get my home directory open; it's just the first Finder window. If I close all Finder windows and open Finder again, .ssh is opened again.
Does anybody have any suggestion on how to troubleshoot this further?
I'm running El Capitan 10.11.5
