    Hey everyone.

    I just recieved my new Mini and I have having the time of my life with it. The only thing that is bugging me is that in the applications folder, I have installed 2 new programs. Is there any way to get the icons to automatically organize alphebeticaly like in Windows? Thanks.

    Just click on 'Name' at the top of the window when you're in List view (View menu)

    Or press APPLE-J and then tick the box that says "keep arranged by" and select "Name" from the drop down menu. This same window should give you the option of making this the default for all windows too. There's a box to tick up the top somewhere.

    Or, if you're in Icon view, just choose from the menu: View -> Arrange -> by Name.
