After opening several Tabs in Finder, I find they have closed after I´ve shut down & then (Later), restart my Mac Mini.

The Safari tabs stay open.

Cant find anything in `Finder Preferences´ or in `System Preferences´.


I tried Deleting:

~/Library/Saved Application State/com.apple.finder.savedState

(Thanks to Carolyn Samit, but not a permanent fix)


And also copied & pasted to Terminal:

  • defaults write com.apple.finder NSQuitAlwaysKeepsWindows -bool true

(Thanks to Miska for tip, but not a permanent fix)


These two actions worked for two Shut Downs / Restarts.

But I have just started up my Mac Mini after turning it off last night, and ALL the Finder-Tabs I left open are gone again!!!

(Just the main Finder window is open!).


Of course, I have "Reopen all windows after Shut Down / Restart" checked.

(The Safari Tabs stay open!).


Anyone know how to get round this, and how to keep the Finder-Tabs open after Shut Down / Restart???


Thanks for all suggestions!



Mac mini (Late 2009), Mac OS X (10.7.4)
