    "An image says more than a thousand words" ..

    With words it is not easy to explain my issue, especially not easy for a foreigner .. Therefor the screen dump
    The first column in the Finder top bar is way too large. I always have to drag to be able to see the other files' info .. size, date ect.
    How can I change this .. ?

    Happiness and Peace

    Part of the old MR guard.
    However your mouse next to the tiny line between the two columns "Name" and "Date".

    You'll see that the icon of the pointer/mouse will change to <-|->. Hold down your trackpad, drag to the left, as you wish, to resize the column.

    Hope this helps.

    Far from here

    you can reduce the width of the left column by moving the separator between the first and second columns to the left.

    thank you and yes I know

    about the changing of the size in between the finder columns.
    But all the time when I open a new finder window I have to do this .. That to me I consider not normal let alone handy ..

    So I want to change it .. for good:)
