Using Finder List View

One of the types of file views you have in the Finder is the List View. This displays more information about each file than either the Column or Icon view. You can sort files by any attribute, and change which attributes are displayed. You can also group files by date, size and other things. You can dig down into subfolders using the reveal triangles next to the folder icons.

    Thank you for the video about using the finder list view. You made it really clear how this feature works. I learned several new things that will be useful and I plan to share this website with the 10 members of my extended family who use macs.

    I'd like to see you do "Advantages of Column View" (why Gary likes it). I use List View 99% of the time and fear I'm missing something. Somewhere, I've seen a key combo that opens or closes all the folders at once, in a list-type view, when you click an arrow--maybe in a previous life like Snow Leopard?.
