10.4.6 I'm used to viewing my folders in "Details" while using windows and I find the icon view in MacOS to be a pain and there seems to be no simple way to veiw either list or column view. Any suggestions to always be either "list" or "column"? I've already tried setting the Finder preferences to "Open new windows in column view" and it doesn't seem to work. I open any folder and it comes up with icon view. These are folders on the desktop if that makes any difference. I thought this was supposed to be easy EDIT I made a new folder and it's column view. So, only newly created folders will retain this setting? why would I want that? Any way to have all folders retain a setting I want rather than having to change it everytime? I really just want it to be list view since icon is not good for the amount of files I have in these folders.
