How to set list view as the default instead of icon view
Thu, 01/15/2004 - 02:15
Thanks for the tips on your site - very generous!
Here's a quick question, if you've got a sec:
In your article "Take the 'Fault' out of Mac OS 9 Default Settings"
> Use list views everywhere.
> This offers the most efficient way to organize and access files,
> and allows you to view multiple nested folders in one window:
> For each window: In View --> select "as List". Repeat for
> other windows.
Is there a way to set list view as default, so that all new folders
appear in list view from the start?

I wish! I've not found a way to do this globally to all folders or to set it as a default (in OS 9 or X). I don't have 10.3 Panther yet, maybe Apple added it.
On a per-window basis, there are easier options: OS X has a command key (command-2), but OS 9 didn't so I set up a QuicKey shortcut to do it with one button. I bet there's a shareware hack out there, though. It would be nice. Does anyone else know a way to do this?
