    Question Default 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.

    finder remembers the last setting for view. you dont have to change it every time you open the window

    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.
