Suddenly, TotalFinder is not working as expected : the sidebar is missing. I uninstall TotalFinder, remove all preferences and reinstall it with the same issue. For 4 years now, it is the first time it happens. Waiting for a fix, I uninstall TotalFinder but I miss The Visor
Have you tried to CMD+OPT+T and CMD+OPT+S? Those are standard Finder shortcuts items under View menu.
I have the same issue and just posted this unter “TotalFinder not running under Yosemite”
CMD+OPT+T and CMD+OPT+S does not help.
Does it just list a “All My Files” pane with nothing else? Mine did this tonight too (posted in the Yosemite thread.) Trying going to “Go -> Applications” and see if you get your normal Finder window. That worked for me until TotalFinder (or more likely Yosemite) somehow corrected itself.
The issue is solved for me like this:
- Uninstall TotalFinder including all its preferences files .plist.
- Reboot your mac
- Re-install TotalFinder.
Tips: to make sure all previous settings have been cleared, TotalFinder must require to register again with your license.
I’m having the same issue - however, mine started before I had TotalFinder installed. I installed TotalFinder to see if it would fix the issue. My issues are:
CMD+U, CMD+T open new finder windows in “My Files” mode.
CMD+OPT+T, CMD+OPT+S have no effect.
Double clicking or hitting CMD+O on a folder open a new finder window.
Basically it’s ignoring all the settings. I’ve deleted plists for finder and restarted, but no effect.
Also, the hint above of Go > Applications did bring up a window with the sidebar, but then if you try to open a new tab with the keyboard, you get a new finder window as above.
Exactly the same problem for me for os 10.10.1 ans totalfinder 1.6.17 … my sidebar is missing in finder.
I tried :
- uninstall totalfinder
- remove .plis for finder and totalfinder
i did not reinstall totalfinder but, if i launch finder from doc … sidebar is missing …
if i click go / download (for example)… sidebar appear
i think, than even if i reinstall totalfinder sidebar will still miss …
don’t know what to do now …
thx for help
thx for support my very bad english
