    Whenever I try to call up a fresh finder window I have to be in finder and hit Cmd+N, I was wondering if you can somehow call up a fresh window by clicking the dock somehow ? If I dont have any finder windows open, a cmd click on the finder icon will produce a new window...however if theres any finder windows open this doesn't work....any workarounds besides Cmd+N ??

    Right (or control) click the finder icon and select New Finder Window.

    Hmm, something is definitely wrong on your set up. Either right click, control click will call up a new Finder window even when another Finder window is currently open. It works with or without Finder windows open.
    It's not command click, it's control click.

    just click on the Finder dock icon if no other Finder windows are open or if there are others open switch to Finder by clicking its dock icon or command-tabbing and press command-N.

    Oh yea I gues Cmd+Click doesnt do anything because with 0 finder windows open it will open a new window with a single left click :eek:
