    Hi, quick question. How do I set global finder settings? I like my finder windows to be sorted by kind, that way they are alphabetical but folders and files arent mixed in the list. I know I can use "show view options" to do this, but I have to do that for each folder seperately. How do I access the global settings? Google, search here, and OSX help search haven't found anything.

    thanks

    when you go to show view options and get it the way you want, click the bar at the bottom that says 'use as defaults'
