I am new here, and a long time mac user with Tiger 10.4.10.
Imagine my end of year shock to find today that after a save to an external drive, when all is done and back in my usual Mac HD mode, that double-clicking on a folder, or file on the desktop does not open the folder nor "find" the app to use. I feel like the Tinperson in the Wizard of Oz-the heart of my system is gone! The good news is that when I go to finder I can open stuff manually and the stuff is all there.
Please tell me that this some incredibily simple thing that I have taken for granted all of my OZ like (I am into the happy metaphor, but inside I am freaking out) mac life! Thanks,
