How To Resize All Folders?

When I open folders on my desktop, they are all different sizes. Some I have to click and drag the corner to enlarge. Is there a way to set all folders to open the same size?

    When you double-click a folder on the desktop, it will open up in a new Finder window. And it will remember the size and location of the last time you had that folder open in its own Finder window. Adjust it, and close it, and it should remember again.

    There's no way to get around that, that I can think of. Just open them all, set them to where you want, and close them.

    Another option is to not use the Finder that way. I don't. I don't have any folders on my Desktop. Instead, I have them in the Documents folder, nicely organized. Then when I want to look in them, I open a new Finder window, go to Documents (I have it set to start there), and then dig down from there.

    There are ways to do this but the easiest way requires the use of a third-party utility (which Gary generally does not recommend) that delete hidden system preferences files or to reset them back to their default.
