    I just tried that and it didn't work for me. I also tried from Launchpad and that too didn't work. I guess I'll just have to live with it like it is. Maybe in the next update of Catalina it will work as before.

    I have had exactly the same behaviour since installing Catalina. I now automatically double click the icon when first launching the program!

    Thanks for mentioning that you observe the same behavior. I slowed down my double click and now that also works for me. I'm wondering though why Apple would change something as simple as clicking on Mail and having it open to show the mailboxes without having to click twice.

    This will sound silly but try it anyway; remove the Mail dock icon by dragging it into the middle of an empty desktop, then go to applications and drag a new copy to the dock.

    Another sort of workaround similar to what Jake mentioned is to do what I do, even though I’m still on Mojave.

    That is, create a separate Desktop exclusively for Mail. I have several Desktops for those applications I want to remain open. Whether you like multiple Desktops or just have a separate one for Mail, that would solve your problem ��

    I leave Mail open all the time, in its own space, and swipe to it as needed. I also don't have apps close when I shut down, log out, or restart.

    To fix the error, have you tried safe mode?

    Yes, you do. They close automatically for any and all of those events. They may restart when you reboot or login again, but they are definitely closed when you do those things.

    Excuse my MacOS ignorance but how do you "create a separate Desktop"??? regardless of application...
    And maybe others would like to know as well.

    Use "Mission Control" which should be listed in System Preferences. On older versions of macOS, I believe it was called "Spaces".

    Hi Patrick.

    Since at least Sierra, you can choose up to 16 Desktops (I think - never gone that far).

    Not to everyone’s taste, of course, and you can allocate apps to one Desktop, or to all, or none etc.

    For those that like them, I’ll give you my own setup.

    Blank Desktop for 1, Mail on Desktop 2, Safari on Desktop 3, Calendar on Desktop 4, Contacts on Desktop 5.

    That means I can keep these apps open all the time because they are so often used. That allows me to work on another Desktop, say, composing a PowerPoint presentation, or playing music, or composing a Word or Pages document.

    Then an email comes in, or I want to do an internet search, or check my diary/calendar etc and I just have to click on the appropriate icon and it opens it in its own Desktop.

    Not for everyone, as I said, but there as an option.

    Right as usual Charlie. It was called Spaces at least until Mavericks. It was changed to Mission control some time after that. know it was Mission Control by the time of El Capitan.

    Edit: I have not used this feature in some time. I used it quite a lot with my Mac Pro which only had one monitor attached. Once I started using a second monitor consistently my use of Spaces/Mission Control dropped to nothing. I could never remember some of the keyboard shortcuts for swapping spaces/creating new ones.

    Thanks Charlie, I never did understand or appreciate any advantage of using those applications and forget that they exist or what they can possibly do.

    This is where the "swiping" the Magic Mouse or trackpad uses, comes in handy. Right now I have four "Spaces" one one monitor, and two "Spaces" on the other monitor.
