Please help with Mission Control problem; desperate !

Hi all -

I believe I have a Mission Control problem but I am not sure.

I had this problem in the past and asked help but before I could find the reason the problem went away.   Here is that post:

"Hello all -

I am having a weird problem on a new iMac (Sierra) and was wondering if anyone knows what is going on.

If I navigate to a folder and open a document the background slides laterally and disappears.

The document opens above another open window (such as an open Safari window).

On some occasions the documents will open on the upper right of the screen.

How do I get the documents to open and close within the original folder and stop all this sliding?

Note - I do have a second monitor for photo processing but I have that as a second desktop in Mission Control.

All my apps are assigned to the primary (iMac) desktop.

Really tearing my hair out so I would appreciate any ideas.

Thanks - Dave

Well; the problem is back after an update last night.

If I go to a folder and open a text doc (by way of example) the folder beneath slides to the right and the document appears above the assigned desktop.

If I close the document it disappears into the desktop, not back to the (disappeared) original folder.

How can I stop all this sliding ?

Thank you !
