Set Per-Folder Views in the Finder

Tired of navigating to a particular folder and having to switch to List View every time? With Finder in Leopard, you can set viewing preference for each individual folder. Just navigate to it, and set the view the way you want (Column, List, Icon, or Cover Flow). Then choose View > Show View Options (Command-J) and in the window that appears, select the Always Open In... checkbox.

 
 

Got a Holiday Gift Suggestion?

Send Article to a Friend

Got a Holiday Gift Suggestion? We at TidBITS love the holiday season, even with the capitalist feeding frenzy that it has become. If you're interested in participating in one of our holiday traditions, send one paragraph descriptions of your favorite computer-related gift ideas (for giving or receiving) to me at <ace@tidbits.com> before 02-Dec-96. We'll edit them into an article for either TidBITS-357 or TidBITS-358, and we'll even see if we can wrangle some special deals for you. [ACE]
