Thread: Default Finder View
05-27-2004, 01:59 PM #1etaonGuestDefault Finder View
How can I set the default view in Finder to be the List view? I don't want to his command-2 every time I open a new directory. I looked in the Finder preferences and view options, but I didn't see anything.

It remembers the last setting for a specific directory I've already opened, but whenever I open a new directory that I haven't opened before in Finder, it defaults to the Icon view. Is that how it should normally behave?

I couldn't believe how "undocumented" and hard this was to figure out.
The desired view will "take" if
- you are currently on an Administrator account, and
- you change the view (via the view selectors) while the Home account/folder is selected.
