    Hey everyone, something that really bugs me, all random folders have different View Settings (CMD+J) is there anyway to change EVERY folder on Finder to have the same settings? thanks :D

    Yes. Open Show View Options, change settings to what you want, click Use as Defaults button at the bottom.

    Ok, then something is not right. Try this:

    Follow this path to find this file
    HD/Users/YourUserName/Library/Preferences/com.apple.finder.plist
    Move that file to the Desktop
    Restart
    This makes a new default plist file.

    Now try to set those Defaults.
    Does it stick now? If yes, delete the plist file from the Desktop.
