    How to open Finder files in the same window?
    Can anybody tell me how to set the Finder options so that when I click on files, they open in the same window (browser for example) instead of opening a new window each time. I know that I can do this by dragging the file to the window, but it would be much better for me just to be able to click on the file.

    Specs:
    MacBook
    Files are going to be opened by whatever their default application is.
    Not sure what you mean by this, could you explain a little better?

    Yep. Finder Preferences (CMD+,). Uncheck "Always Open Folders in a New Window."
