    I just moved from Tiger to Snow Leopard when I bought my new computer. Tiger all I had to do was click arrange by date once and it always did it. And if i moved a file from the folder all the other files moved up so there wasn't a blank space where the original file had been.

    In Snow Leopard I have to manually tell it to arrange by date each time and in every window. I want all the finder windows this way and I do not want an annoying empty space left when i move a folder.

    I know there has got to be something extremely simple I am over looking. Anyone know how to fix my problems?

    Do that in Show View Options, then click the Use as Defaults button at the bottom. That should do it for all windows.
