    This has probably been covered but I can't seem to find or figure it out. Is there a way to set finder to always arrange files alphabetically? Or do I have to change it in the view options after every new file i add?

    Regards

    Close all open finder windows.

    Open one finder window. Change it to the view option you want.

    Close that finder window.
