    Ok, this is killing me and I know it's an easy answer.

    When I have a Finder window open, and I press cmd-j to bring up view options, I get a "Use As Defaults" button at the bottom for all views EXCEPT COLUMN!

    How do I use Column view as my system default for all windows????

    Thanks for any help.

    In 10.5.8 I can't get the Use As Defaults button to appear in View Options either. But, Dr. Bob LeVitus says you can. I use Icon View almost exclusively. I wonder if there's a connection to a folder that I have set to "Always Open in Icon View". But, I was testing the top level hard drive folder!
