    I'm not really sure if this Lion specific or simply just an OS X issue. Anyway, I upgraded a couple days ago to a dual SSD/HDD system. I have MBP 6,1 and I used the Install disc that came with it to install the OS on the SSD. I then re-downloaded my purchase of Lion and then upgraded. I proceeded to re-install only my needed apps this time, not the junk I had before. In my HDD drive is simply all my music and picture. Nothing else. Anyway, when I open a new Finder window from the Dock, it goes straight to "All My files" on the sidebar. Before I did the upgrade, it never did this. It always stayed on the last section I selected. Anyway to do that again?

    P.S. Open the SSD from the desktop works like it should - opens to last section selected

    Go to Finder Preferences & choose what you want it to open:

    Just go to Finder preferences and change the "New Finder Window" pref.

    Thank you, both of you! I didn't know it was that simple. I've learned something new and now I can actually do some customization with Finder. Thanks again! :)
