Whenever I try to open a Folder from the Dock using the "Open In Finder" command the folder window does not show up but instead the Preview app starts up and scans the selected folder,i.e., Applications, for any files it recognises.


I have repaired the permissions but it makes no difference. I have removed all folder icons from the dock and replaced them but to no avail. I have deleted the dock preferences files in my Home folder & restarted but the problem remains.
