    So basically since DP1 I have had the problem that in a finder window whenever I open one it has the info sidebar on the right. Even when I get rid of it the next time I open a window it is there againHere is a picture of what I am talking about. Screen Shot 2015-09-11 at 4.25.50 PM.png

    Also, another problem I have with finder is that when I scroll through a folder, then open a sub-folder of that folder, then click the back button, I am redirected back to the top of the original folder, instead of where I was scrolled to when I opened the sub-folder. Has anyone else experiences these problems or know of a possible fix? Thanks in advance.

    Just deleted my preferences and I am still having the issue.

    Thanks for pointing that out, doesn't look like the thread offers any solutions unfortunately.

    Your first problem, what you call the info sidebar is actually the preview pane.
    Top menubar->View->Hide Preview, that should fix it.
