    These are probably minor quibbles, but here goes...

    1. Is there a way to make my machine remember folder settings? Specifically for external drives. I'd like the window to be a certain size, sort the folders by date created, and preferably not have to do this everytime I mount the drive.

    2. Is there a way to make my machine remember view settings by file type? For instance jpegs by thumbnail view, music by list view, etc.

    3. When I hit cmd-I, an info window shoots out way over to the left of my screen. No matter where I move it to, the next time I look up info on a file, that little window flies out to the far left of the screen. Is there a way to make it remember where I've put it?

    (I'm on Snow Leopard if that has any bearing)

    I find these quirks annoying too... and I have yet to find a workaround for any of them. I feel your pain. :(

    Wow, so there's no answer to any of this? That's a little disappointing.

    If there is, I haven't yet found it. As someone who recently switched back to Mac after Win7, those things drive me nuts too!
