    I did something and now all my folders auto organize when i add stuff to them system wide. how do i disable this? i likes the way of always going to bottom of folder and then i can organize the way i want.

    thanks

    In any finder window Go to View-->Show View Options (or hit Apple+J): in the resulting window you can choose the "Arrange By" setting you prefer. Sounds like you just want "None" if you want them where ever or "Snap to Grid" if you want to define the order but let Finder pretty things up. Good Luck.

    Edit:
    Almost forgot, if you want to apply these settings across the system just click the "Use as Defaults" button in the view options window after you've set it the way you want it.
