Using this tip to fix window size from folders on desktop
Authored by: davidmorr on Dec 02, '04 05:40:24PM

Finder windows of "system" directories never change their default settings for me.

I suspect this is because this information is stored in files in those directories (.DS Store?) which are not owned by me and the protections on the files and directories stop me altering them.

I suspect the only way to make this happen is to login as root, change the layout and location to what you want, then logout and login again with your normal username.

Cheers

David
