In the macOS Sierra Finder, “there are two new preferences, that will be useful for some people,” Kirk McElhearn writes for Kirkville.
“The first lets you tell the Finder to automatically delete item from the Trash after 30 days. I know a lot of people who never empty the Trash, until they eventually run out of space on their Macs. This will help them, since items in the Trash will be deleted automatically,” McElhearn writes. “Unfortunately, this setting of 30 days is a long time; I think a week would be better, or perhaps a menu with several choices, such as On Shutdown, One Day, One Week, One Month.”
“The second setting makes for better file viewing when you view files in the Finder in list mode, and sort by name,” McElhearn writes. “Folders will display at the top of the list, instead of mixed into the list in alphabetical order.”
