My Path Finder never used to show up on all my desktops. I actually want it on only one desktop. I can't seem to find a preference to remove this setting.

How do I keep Path Finder on just one desktop?

    Hi Chris,

    Thanks for reaching out! 

    Is there any chance that you've changed its settings? 
    For example, enabling "Set as the default File Browser" at PathFinder > Preferences > General could cause this. 

    Looking forward to your reply. 

    Best Regards,

    Hello Jordan,
    I'm not sure why the ticket was closed - I am replying as soon as possible.
    I checked the General setting in the preferences tab. The setting, "Set as default file browser" is NOT checked.

    Screen shot attached.

    Hi Chris, 

    Please ignore the discussion being closed. 
    The forum is integrated with our CRM system and it automatically closes tickets after each reply. 
    Every new reply reopens it, so other users should be able to comment and subscribe to your thread regardless its status. 

    May I ask you to reset your PathFinder preferences by clearing them up? 
    Please follow the instruction and check if the issue still persists: 

    1. Delete Path Finder and its traces according to the article: 
      http://support.cocoatech.com/kb/installation-and-compatibility/how-...
    2. Download the latest version of the app from our site
    3. Copy zipped app to the Applications folder
    4. Unzip it into the Apps folder and launch

    Let me know how it goes. 

    Best Regards, 
    Jordan

    Hello,
    Okay, I used the App Cleaner tool. And reinstalled from a zip file within the App folder.
    Restarted and of course PF no longer has my name or license information. However, the problem persists. PF is on every desktop unlike all my other apps - they remain on the desktop they were opened.
    I checked the Preferences pane within PF - and I really don't see any option there that would change this behavior.

    Hi Chris, 

    Should I send your activation data to you? 

    Sorry for suggesting you the reinstall since it didn't help. 
    It's just that you mentioned that it wasn't like this before. 
    Do you remember anything that was changed on your Mac when this started happening? 
    Also, am I right to suppose that you have "Show PathFinder Desktop" unchecked at PathFinder > Preferences > Features > Desktop? 

    Looking forward to your reply. 

    Best Regards,

    So far, Pathfinder now keeps wanting to "move" itself to my Application folder. However, it already is in the Application folder. I start it from there!

    Image attached. I have not yet re-entered my license information.

    Chris.

    Also, where can I get a copy of my license? I don't seem to have that information now.

    Thank you,
    Chris

    Hi Chris, 

    Thanks for reaching out! 

    Please follow the instruction and check if the issue still persists, this should fix "move to apps folder" issue: 

    1. Open your terminal and paste the following command to check if Path Finder has been slapped with the quarantined extended attribute:
      xattr /Applications/"Path Finder.app"

    2. If you see com.apple.quarantine returned as output from that last command, then go ahead and run this next command:
      xattr -d com.apple.quarantine /Applications/"Path Finder.app"

    You won't get any feedback or output from that command, but that's okay because you can just run the first command again to see for yourself if the com.apple.quarantine attribute shows up again. It shouldn't, and now Path Finder is freed from Apple quarantine jail. Restart your PathFinder now. 

    Here's your PathFinder 7 license: 
    Name: Chris Berardi
    Registration key: PF7:GAWQE-FAQL2-KT6VA-9X5WB-ZYLHU-YVE8R-VUMPG-3TQYC-CUAKD-NQFM7-WRT72-JKDPB-WSWQF-YVW6Y-A8RLL-A-23UU1

    Let me know how it goes.
