    Hi, sometimes when I open up a new finder window, specifically my library folder, all the folders look like this: (check attached image, the folders look way too big), and despite the fact that it's not too big of a deal, it is really bugging me. Could someone please help me out and provide a solution for this?

    Those folder icons look like what I'm used to seeing on my Mac. I don't understand the issue.

    The issue is, there is a large gap between the rows of folders, and I know that might seem obvious as I have not yet opened another folder hense the system having nothing to display, but if it did do that then usually there would be a Grey line just past the folders, but here the Grey arrow is way at the end of the page, instead of being next to the Grey line that should be there.

    Now that you've explained your problem better, let's see if we can fix it.
    I would suggest putting your cursor on the fine grey line next to the little grey arrowhead in the Applications folder line.
    It should change appearance and look like the cursor in my photo.
    Now hold and drag the line to the left and this should bring the missing line on the far right into view so you can repeat this action on that line and shrink the column spacing.

    Hold the Option key down while resizing the columns (as jbarley instructed above) to adjust all the columns at once, sizing them all the same.

    No problem. Holding the Option key down in the Finder while doing things often yields all sorts of hidden gems... Like Option clicking the WiFi, Bluetooth and Sound icons in the menubar.
