    default finder view?
    is there any way to make the finder display in list/details mode all the time? i can change it and it will stay like that for a while, but if i open up the finder again, or reboot or something like that, it goes back to the default icon view.

    As far as I know you can only set it to column view.
    Go under File, to prefereces and there is a check box for column
    hope that is a little helpful

    From a previous post. I hope to reply to everyone that has EVER asked this question. Very frustrated at how this seemingly simple feature is undocumented anywhere.

    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.
