    Hi, this may be a total noob question, but can you change the opening location of a folder?

    When I open up any of my folders from my desktop (Macintosh HD, My Documents) the folder is on the far right of the screen with about a quarter of it off the screen. It gets annoying to have to drag it onto the screen every time, then as soon as I quit and open it back up, it's back in that spot.

    I'm not the greatest with computers, could someone help me with this?

    Open the folder, drag it to where you'd like it to open, close the folder.

    When you open it again, it should open in the "new" location. At least that works for me in 10.5.6.
