"Show Less" requiring horizontal scrolling is the worst.

Anyone out there know of a terminal command or something to kill this "feature"? I would like my files to "Show All" by default ALWAYS when sorting by type or label or what have you.

Just use list view instead. – Daniel Beck Mar 12 '12 at 6:42

I don't know any way to make it the default, but you can still use the old sorting modes without all the sections. If you hold option, the View > Arrange By menu turns into Sort By.

Note that the Arrange By mode has to be set to none by pressing ⌃⌘0 first.
