    A (very newbie) question about Folders
    I've actually been using my own iMac for a year, but the one we just purchased for a family member has some different settings. I know how to change most of them, but I very stupidly can't figure this one out:

    I want all of the folders to display without having to click "Show All." What setting to I need to modify this?

    Many thanks!

    You get an arrangement like that when you arrange by "kind". To fix, right-click in a blank area of that window; select "Arrange by", and use a different option, like "Name".

    Please verify and include the exact model/year of your Mac and OS X version number (available from "About This Mac", then "More Info" on the Apple menu).

    I knew it was going to be something ridiculously obvious. Thank you!
