    I have a double "arrange by" menus on right click in Finder. The contents are different but "name" is in both. Is this correct behavior? It seems that they should be merged to one.

    Open up /Applications/Utilities/Terminal and paste in the command:

    /System/Library/Frameworks/CoreServices.framework/Versions/A/Frameworks/LaunchServices.framework/Versions/A/Support/lsregister -kill -r -domain local -domain system -domain user
    Run this command until you get another Terminal prompt. This then should fix your problem, Good Luck.

    Thank you! I will try that.

    I also found out that all retinas seem to have this behavior so maybe it is intended.
