Here’s the play-by-play on how to regain control of your digital universe:

1. Find your desired parent folder, the one you frequently access, let’s say it’s
called “Active Clients.” Locate it in Finder and prepare for the magic.

2. Pro-tip: Grab that folder and drag it over to the right side of your trusty Dock. Take a moment to savor the feeling of taking charge.

3. Now, right-click on the folder you just placed in the Dock. A magical menu appears before you. Look for the option that says “Display As” and give it a satisfying click. Tick the box that says “Folder.” Boom! Your folder now proudly stands among the app icons, ready to serve your organizational needs.

4. But wait, there’s more! Right-click on that folder again, but this time, explore the “View Content As” option. Choose “List” and watch as the contents of your folder transform into a neat and orderly list view. Say goodbye to the confusion of thumbnail chaos.
