I've not had a mac for long, so I may have accidentally pressed a short-cut to turn this feature on. But....

When I single-click on a dock item to open it. The Finder opens with the application highlighted in the list.

This is really annoying and I don't know how to make it actually open the application?!

This happens on all dock items. I can double click apps in the finder window to open them.

Any ideas?

Thanks in advance.

well that's what happens when you cmd-click a dock item, it opens up Finder in the app's location

try restarting the Dock by forcequiting from Activity monitor, maybe a glitch
however, I'm not sure how to change the default on-click action
