    right size all columns individually all the time...would. be. awesome.

    I would love it is snow leopard can do this. Does anyone know how?

    I am tired of only seeing half my folder names in the columns view of finder and manually setting this up each time I enter a new column..:mad:

    Set 'em all up once, then always use Always Open Folders in a new Window

    Wouldn't folders always open in a new window then? I also would like to right size all columns individually.. permanently.

    Yes. That's the point.

    You might not know; that's the way it was before OS X.

    If I'm understanding the original question(s) right, then that is something I would like to know how to do too.

    That is, I open a finder window, and then go into Documents or something like that, and click on a sub folder...so now I have two or three columns to the right as the sub-folders spread out. BUT, the new columns are always rather thin, and so most of my file names are only partially visible.

    I can "grab" the little handles and spread each column out, but that only lasts the one time, and the next time I go into finder I have to re-grab everything. This gets tiring when I know I would like them to open "wide" every time (and the very few times I did not, well, those would be the times I could "grab" and readjust vs. having that be the default).

    I'm not sure that opening in a new window is what I'm looking for - I just want the finder columns to be wider (or to stay the width I want them) without having to tug each one over each time.

    I'm hoping there is some way to do this that I just don't know about.
