    So I just got a new rMBP and so far I'm very happy with it, still a huge learning curve for me and will definitely be bugging you guys with beginners' questions on many occasions.
    I was messing around with the view options today and I accidentally clicked "Use as default" on a custom configuration...Is there any way to reset the default view to what it actually was?
    This is the Applications folder and I really like how it auto-arranged them so that the newest things come at the bottom.

    TL;DR: How do I reset Applications folder view in the finder to its factory default even if I changed the default?

    Thanks in advance!

    In terminal, type:
    sudo rm "/Applications/.DS_Store"
    killall Finder

    Thanks a lot for the speedy reply!
    I may be doing something wrong, but it still looks the same to me.
    When I typed the first line it warned me, I entered my password.
    When I typed the second line nothing seemed to happen, except another line appears with a square.

    Nvm, I got it, this is gonna reset my View profile to the factory default, but the factory default is nothing really, which is why whenever I use "Restore to default" now nothing is going to happen. Is there a way to arrange it manually then?
