    Hi,


    I can't see Finder Preferences in my Pref folder in Mvrks

    Has it got a new name, or is it somewhere else?

    thanks

    It should be there. Are you sure you're looking in the user Library folder?:D

    Was looking in wrong library - thanks

    UPDATE I've gone to USERS, opened my home folder and no Library or preference folder in there.

    If I open HD and got to Library, there's a Pref Folder but it doesn't show any of the files Bruno09 lists.

    So still puzzled.

    The user Library is hidden by default.
    In Finder View Options, there's a checkbox to reveal it.
    (This works only when you're currently in a folder showing your user home.)

    You can unhide the users Library folder like benwiggy said, or to go directly there open Finder then click the Go menu then Go to Folder... and paste in the line below then hit return. You will see the Finder plist file there.

    Code:
    ~/Library/Preferences
