When I create a folder it will be placed in an irrelevant position to the existing items in that directory, making a mess, killing all aesthetics, whatsoever. How to make the elements to be listed in a grid or something, like for example in Windows? I want this option to be the default.


Perhaps Finder menu > View > Show View Options > Sort by: > Snap to Grid is what you're looking for:

  • Where is the Menu? =) – gsamaras Dec 17 '16 at 22:26
  • Click on the Desktop so that Finder appears to the right of the Apple menu. You should see the menu items File Edit View Go Window Help. – IconDaemon Dec 17 '16 at 22:33
  • Yeah, that's where I am at, but I cannot see the word "menu" anywhere. :/ – gsamaras Dec 17 '16 at 22:36
  • I just augmented the answer with a nice graphic. – IconDaemon Dec 17 '16 at 22:43
  • Ah "Finder menu", not go to Finder and then search for Menu...Dah, sorry IconDeamon, but my mind is melting on this C++ question! Thank. – gsamaras Dec 17 '16 at 23:35
