A tale of two Finders


Force Quit Applications showing multiple Finders

I’ve been using Mac OS X, OS X, macOS, or whatever they’re calling it now, since the original betas. And I don’t think I’ve ever had multiple Finder processes running. I’ve had no Finders many times, and multiple BBEdits back in the day.

More curious is the fact Activity Monitor only lists iTunes Helper as Not Responding. I know how it feels.
