10.3: Resize all column widths with the Option key
Authored by: rhowell on Nov 26, '03 03:13:23PM

In Panther, when you double-click on the button that you would normally grab-and-slide, it auto-expands the respective column to fit all file names. It leaves the widths of the other columns untouched.

In Jaguar, double-clicking would auto-expand every column the same amount, but every file name in every column would be then be visible. Granted, some columns would be expanded far beyond their necessary width.

10.3: Resize all column widths with the Option key

Rob was correct about the option-key just being reversed 10.2 v. 10.3, and in light of that, if you option+dbl+click the column resize tool in 10.2 just that column resizes to fit... how long I have wanted to know how to do this I'd rather not admit...

OK -Great! Now I know how to use the option key to resize all columns! Thanks for posting this tidbit.

Now, what I would like to know - How do you set a default column width that is narrow enough to show a few columns when first opening a finder window?

Duuuhhhhhh-uuhhhhhhh!!!! I think I answered my own question! Using the option key to resize all columns sets that spacing as the default spacing!

Sorry for wasting the bandwidth otherwise!
