I am having some weird issues with my Dock and finder since installing Path Finder and I am wondering if the two could be related!

Lots of weird stuff from

Dock disappearing!
Cursor changing from an arrow pointing to 10 O´Clock to 12 O´Clock
Can not change desktop background image
Can not navigate finder sub menus. Can only get into them with arrow keys!
Full screen mode in programs broken!!!

Any ideas?

best

Paul

    Path Finder does nothing of the sort to your system, specially if it's not running.
    The only thing you can fix is the duplicate desktop icons by disabling Preferences > Features > Desktop > Show Path Finder Desktop.

    You must have a weird issue going on.

    That seems to have done the trick. Will keep an eye on things. But why would that option be in there in the first place? I do not get it?

    If you hide Finder's desktop in Preferences > Finder, you can use PF's desktop as an alternative as well as the ability to show a trashcan on the desktop.

    Ah OK got it thanks. That is why the trash can on the desktop has a little red number tag. it is not a finder trash rather a PF trash can. great. love your product. Keep up the good work. I have my fingers crossed that the problem is solved. thanks Paul.
