    Just recently for some reason, when I open one of my HDs up in Finder (I always use List view) I have to resize the columns to be able to see them all.

    I have the following columns:
    Name
    Date Modified
    Size
    Kind

    When I open the folder I can only see Name and Date Modified, I have to resize them to bring the other two columns into view from the right hand side to see all the info at the same time.

    This is starting to get very annoying!

    Surely there is a way for me to set the size of each column and have the system remember this Sio each time I go to a folder it shows me the four columns without having to mess about resizing them?

    Try this: Set the Finder window as you want it then select View (menu)>Show View Options. Click the Use as defaults button at the bottom of the small View Options window.

    The way that used to work, it will change all enclosed folders to that default, unless you have manually changed settings in them. Maybe it's different now. ??
