Is there some way to keep the sidebar from being open by default when opening folders?
Every folder you open, click the oval in the upper right corner, then close the folder. Next time, it should open without the Sidebar. I don't think clicking on "Save as Defaults" in Show View Options will cause all windows to lose the Sidebar. But you can try that.
I have been doing that, and doing that... It doesn't seem to work over time.
Just tried it on one window. It works for me.
Don't know if this is a Finder issue or a System User Interface issue, or something else. To find out if it's one of the above, use a trial and error method: one plist file at a time. Not very sophisticated, but Mr. Sophisticated hasn't posted.
Move one to the Desktop.
Try the other one.
I trashed the plist files.
The sidebar stays closed on most folders.
The "Utilities" and "Downloads" folders still open with the sidebar.
If I close the folders and reopen them (without manually closing the sidebar), the sidebar is closed.
Glad that helped!
