How can I get menu settings in OS X Yosemite to save?

Episode 1161 (2:13:04)

Elizabeth from Irvine, CA

Elizabeth's Mac at work runs OS X Yosemite and with the latest update, she's having issues with how to look at the columns. They're too wide! Leo says that she can adjust and shrink the column sizes, add other columns, and remove others. It's completely customizable. But Elizabeth says that when she closes out the window and goes back in, it reverts back. How can she permanently save the settings? Leo says that sometimes when a company updates an OS, some features fall by the wayside and it sounds like this may be one of them. Leo says that if she holds down the option key while making those changes, it should change and remember them. If not, running Disk Utility should repair that.
