    Finder default folder option, unexpanded folders
    When I exit finder after expanding a folder (the grey triangle points downward rather than to the side, not sure what you call it) and reopen finder, the folder is still expanded.

    Is their a way to make it so that the next time I open finder all my folders remain unexpanded? I don't like the way it works.

    That was a tough one for me to explain, sorry if that doesn't make sense to anybody.

    If you don't like the finder side bar folders expanded then close them before closing finder..
    Finder opens in the view & size you left it in.

    The 'Save As' window will automatically expand them so you can find the folder you want to save to.

    Personally I leave all except the search option expanded for easy access ~ the folders I want to access all the time are dragged over to the sidebar.

    I just don't like the messy look and don't want to spend the time closing it down again, but it looks to me like I don't have a choice.

    Thanks anyway,

    You could press the white lozenge top right on the Finder window to remove the toolbar and the sidebar.
    Clean and tidy

    Don't worry ~ It's a Toggle switch.
