    I was wondering how I can tell all the folders (and their contents) in Mac OS X 10.5 to rearrange by name, rather than tell each folder individually. Thanks.

    There's a button at the bottom that says "Use as Defaults". This will set the options to all folders.

    I just discovered it. I know must have pressed that button before because I had set it to arrange all folders by name on my other mac. Thanks.

    Right click (ctrl click) a folder or inside the folder and select get info.
    At the bottom of the "info" window that pops up.

    Should be right click and choose "Select View Options", not "Get Info".

    The finder in OS X needs tremendous improvement. Fast.

    Right, but can't I just modify which columns it shows, and not how they are arranged, in View Options?
