I generally use small icons to display my Mac files, choosing the tight grid spacing under Preferences. Now every time I restart my computer, it returns to wide grid spacing.
Please do not suggest reinstalling OS 8.
By the way, if I trash the Preferences folder, will a new one appear automatically as it does with applications, or will I have to reinstall it from the system CD?
I find that I can't just install what I like from the system CD. It always insists on installing all sorts of stuff I don't want and have to throw out. So I really don't want to have to reinstall. There must be some easier way.
