Finder/totalfinder popping up too often


#1

Finder/Totalfinder keeps popping up every 5 mins. What’s going on and what can do to stop that behaviour?


#2

What do you mean by popping? A Finder/TotalFinder window is being brought to front?

Try to force-quit Finder.app via CMD+OPT+ESC and run Finder.app without TotalFinder for a while to observe if this is actually related to TotalFinder. Some other app/script might be activating Finder behind your back.

Do you have the “option” + “option” command enabled to engage visor? I have noticed that it will pop up on occasion when I am using option as a hotkey and hit it twice in a row by mistake. I disabled this function and haven’t had any other issues.


#4

Finder still keeps popping up without any provocation. Please advise on a way to stop it so it could behave normal.


#5

Well. It is really difficult for me to suggest anything because I don’t know the source of this behaviour. TotalFinder should not keep popping under normal circumstances.

Did you try it with basic Finder without TotalFinder running?
