    Mac Sidebar 10.6.8

    I am having a certain issue with the sidebar

    The thing is that whenever i open the sidebar its too big
    My folders or any file as such in the last gets shifted to the next row and i dont want that.

    Is there any way to set the default sidebar size so that it doesnt resize at all either big or small irrespective of drives attached.

    i saw on some site the following code. if in anyway the same could be made default it would be nice.

    "Open the AppleScript Editor in the /Applications/Utilities/ folder and run:


    tell application "Finder"

    set sidebar width of window 1 to 136

    end tell"

    What resolution are you running your Mac at? And it would be helpful if you told us what Mac you have - year, model, and which version of OS X you're running.

    You can drag the edge of the sidebar so that it's fairly small. Not small enough?
    Always listen to experts. They’ll tell you what can’t be done and why. Then do it!

    What he said. I just tested it on my system (10.5.8) and if I make the Sidebar smaller then close the window, it comes back at the smaller size.
