    I recently upgraded from Leopard to snow leopard.
    Could you please explain where i can make the below setting in Snow Leopard.

    In Leopard Dock

    For "Documents" n "Downloads folder -->Click and hold i will have a option to show files in "Documents" n "Downloads" -->

    View Content-->as a Grid or Fan or List or Automatic:
    Display-->Folder or Stacks

    In Snow leopard this option is missing,When i click and hold Downloads folder insted of giving me those options this is opening the folder

    Please update me where in Snow Leopard i can make this settings

    Right click = secondary click. Use two fingers to click, I think it's on by default.

    Snow leopard: stack

    How does one change options when one is not able to see it? In the attached screen shot, "Fan" is not listed as an option under "View content as--Grid--List--Automatic." Anyone out there has the same problem? How has the option "Fan" gone?

    It depends on the position of your "dock" on the screen. If yours, as I suppose, is on the left the fan option won't be accessible.

    Try restoring the dock's position to bottom and you should see the fan option again.
