    Mmmm, I just got a brand new iBook today and I absolutely love it! One thing though, I noticed when I open up folders the files within them are everywhere. I'm a weird organizational freak, so is there some way of lining them up? I've never really used a Mac before... just switched over from XP. I know in Windows you can just right click and choose line up icons, or something similar. Is there a way to do this in OSX or am I stuck with icons all over the place? Thanks.

    Oh, and I know I can get them lined up by changing the view to List or doing the three windows view, but I like my large icons!

    yeah on the top toolbar of your screen
    there should be a tab called

    view

    click on clean up and it will sort them in a neat grid or
    you can click on view

    as a list
    or as colums - which shows teh tiers of directories

    Is there a way to reduce the spacing of icons when in icon view so the columns are not spaced so far apart?

    You can also set preferencs for the finder to "snap to grid" so that when you dump a doc/folder into another, it will line up with the rest.
