    If you had a window open when you turned off your computer a window will open when it starts up.

    At least I think that's what you're getting at. If not, of course the Finder starts every time you start your computer. It's always on.

    Well, even if you don't, it'll still be open. In OS X, Applications can be open without having any windows. In addition to browsing through files, Finder handles how your desktop icons appear, among other things.

    If you quit absolutely every application in OS X, including Finder (which is posisble), Finder automatically opens anyway.

    While the App is open, no window will be open....unless you left one open at shutdown.
