While I'm not sure what the reason is (maybe a beta glitch or temporary decision), you should be able to work around it by using the Go To Folder command in the Finder and entering ~/Documents. Then drag it to the Favorites sidebar and you can always access it from there.

Using the Open With to make sure you open the file with VLC will add it to the current playlist. However, this will start playing the file immediately unless you change a default setting in VLC.

The link needs an absolute path. ln -s foo.bar baz will create an alias in baz pointing to the file foo.bar. But the file baz/foo.bar does not exist, hence the error you received. You want: ln -s ~/Desktop/foo.bar baz which will create an alias in the baz directory pointing to ~/Desktop/foo.bar.

It's not possible to open folder with one click in default "Icons" view in Finder. However switching to "Columns" view (cmd-3) will allow you to open folder with one click. Also it could be faster to just use hotkeys instead of trackpad/mouse. Use arrows to navigate inside "Icons" view, cmd-down to open selected folder and enter to rename selected file or ...

The group is showing as restricted - this may indicate that it's due to SIP. Try: https://stackoverflow.com/questions/30768087/restricted-folder-files-in-os-x-el-capitan tells you how to temporarily disable SIP to delete the file. Could also try sudo chown [owner]:[group]? (Although if it is SIP, I don't think that it's this easy to get around).

Do we have to be concerned about the names being the same?

I had a similar situation, I wanted all of my folders containing images to be set the same way under Show View Options. I used Automator: choose "Application" for document type, then select "Set Folder View". Name the app, then you can drop any number of folders on top of it and it will set the view options to whatever you've selected.

The easiest way and fastest to generate .DS_Store files is to open a Finder window in that folder and going to Finder / View / Show View Options (shortcut Cmd+J) and deselecting Show icon preview. But you can also make this the default behaviour for folders without the stored preferences by clicking on Use as defaults. If you have many folders to take care ...

After you run the defaults write com.apple.finder AppleShowAllFiles YES command, hold the 'option/alt' key, then right click on the Finder icon in the dock and click Relaunch.

Try this: defaults write com.apple.Finder AppleShowAllFiles -bool true; killall Finder This sets AppleShowAllFiles to true which tells Finder to show all file. Note the -bool part, that tells will make sure you are setting a Boolean to it instead of string, integer etc. Finally it restarts Finder.

open Terminal type cd (including the trailing space) and drag the folder containing the files to be renamed into the Terminal window (the folder is probably Desktop/PRIMARYVIDEOS, so the command should look like cd /Users/Andrew/Desktop/PRIMARYVIDEOS) press Enter type (or copy/paste) for f in *; do t=$(echo $f | sed -E 's/[-. mov]//g'); echo touch -t $t "$f"...

The Supporting Files group is not created for Swift-based projects. For Objective-C-based projects, the folder usually contains main.m and maybe Info.plist (with related strings files).

You said: “There is no button labeled "Use As Defaults" on my version of OS X." But there is, or should be. Opene diskUtility, select your disk and hit the FirstAid tab: it will correct the permissions; then restart the mac. This will probably help.

Indeed, unique sort order is possible. Open a new Finder window for e.g. Documents and Go to View > Show View Options or hit Command + J. Define your Sort order. That's it. Close the window Repeat the step for every window. This way you can define the Sort order for every Finder window.
