First, open the Finder app by clicking the Dock button, which looks like a face. Click on the "Finder" option in the menu bar. Then click on "Settings". Alternatively, you can use the shortcut "Command +" (Command and Comma) to quickly open the Preferences window.

button Return to the Settings menu and select it as the new folder Default folder for the Finder app. The next time you open the Finder app, the folder you select opens.
