    when i click on desktop and press command-shift-a to open applications folder, the first finder windows gets switched to the app folder and not opening a new finder window.
    how can i set the default to open new window when i use shortcuts like that?

    thanks

    I don't think you can, but you can press command+N first.

    Does Cmd-N always open the Documents folder of the active user account?
    Is there a setting that can change that?

    (Not that I care, but the OP or others might.)

    Yes there is. Finder -> Preferences -> General -> New Finder windows open -> whatever.
