You could try this:
Set up the window the way you like it.
Go to View > Show View Options.
Choose to always open in whatever view you want. Choose to "Organize By" how you want.
Click Use As Default to use these settings system wide.

Thanks for your help on this one. Actually, I reguarlly go into the view options and modify those settings. Often the settings return to (1) "Kind" then (2) "Last Modified" which is not very helpful when searching for a file. One typically scans through files alphabetically.
The 10-million dollar question is: How does one change the Folder Viewing Options to (1) Kind then (2) Name as the default setting?
Thanks for your help and input on this one. Looks like I am still searching for the answer.

Yes, thank you.
If you set the "Sort By" menu to name, does that do what you want?
I was experimenting in Finder and it appears you have to set each folder (Documents, User and so forth) individually. There doesn't appear to be a univeral set all and I don't have a button "Use as Default."

Yes, when I change the setting it gives me exact what I want. The frustration occurs when I have to do it repeatedly with the same folder.
If you're right about no universal setting option, then it would be nice to add that it an update.
Thanks for your help.
