    When I find things through finder, for example text edit, I'll click on it, but then nothing happens. But then, if I use Ctrl+click-and pick open, it opens. This didn't happen on my old MAC, and I'm using the new Snow Leopard-Mac white '09. Is there anyway that I can make it so that I can double click to open apps that I find in the finder?
    just to be precise, I wouldn't be able to open up Library in this finder if I just double clicked on it
    Any help would be great!

    Could it just be that your double-click speed is set uncomfortably fast?  -> System Preferences -> Keyboard & Mouse -> Mouse.

    You're not even double clicking as far as i can tell from your original post. You have to double click to open things in the finder window (not the Finder sidebar or the Dock, though).
