    I have two accounts set up on Mac. The mac boots into the primary account just fine. But whenever I go to my secondary account finder always opens a window just after startup.

    Any ideas why it might be doing this?

    When you shut down the computer did you leave a Finder window open?

    What do you have for Login Items for that user?

    No. Every time I close all apps and windows.

    There are only two login items:-
    1. itunes helper
    2. CNQL1208_ButtonManager

    Okay, nothing in the login items to cause it. Try trashing the Finder preferences for that account, here's how:

    Now that I look closer I notice that any changes I make in the widget screen don't get saved either. I set this account up a long time ago and if I recall correctly I set it up so that it only had limited ability to change settings.

    Only thing is I now can't remember what setting I might have used.

    Any ideas?
