Finder hints – resize column view

Finder hints – resize column view

This one is good if you use the finder ‘column view’ if you find the file names always being truncated then you can resize column view width.

you can do it a few different ways

1 ) drag the || icon at the bottom of the column
2 ) right click the || icon at the bottom of the column.
it will show you three options
– right size this column
– right size all columns individually
– right size all columns equally
they are pretty self explanatory :
the first resizes the current column so that all the filenames are not truncated (it makes it the right size)
the second resizes every column so that all the file names are not truncated by making each column as wide as it needs to be (it makes each column be the right size)
the third resizes every column to be the width of the widest column needed to make all filenames not be truncated.

the second one is the one that is probably needed to be set to default, but as of yet there doesn’t seem to be a way to set this as default.

in any case, I use the coverflow view.
