Something very strange happened to my Mac Pro desktop and the
way it opens Windows.

Suddenly, when clicking on the Macintosh HD icon in the upper
corner of my screen, it continues to open a NEW WINDOW every
time I click on a folder instead of just keeping it to ONE window

It never did this at the beginning. In the beginning everything
stayed in ONE window no matter how many subfolders I clicked on.

I mean, my MacbookPro laptop keeps everything in one window.

I think a piece of software or perhaps some innocent tinkering
must have changed a setting that now produces a new window
with every click.

Problem is, I can't find the problem. I compare my Macbook Pro
(which works fine) to my Mac Pro and all the system settings under
FINDER and GET INFO are identical.

Can anyone suggest a fix?

Open Finder > Preferences and uncheck "Always open folders in a new window"
