OS X: Any way to have the (basically useless) sidebar that appears in all Finder windows automatically disabled for all windows?

You can click the little widget in the top right corner of all windows to switch to the plain window style, or command click it to cycle through the Finder window options (small text, no icons, etc.) New windows open according to whatever you last set.

Forgot about the widget. Thanks, jack.

Response by poster: Thanks for the suggestions. I'm still getting varying results depending on which folder and volume (some remote) I open. I wish there was a way to tell the OS: Listen, this is how I want windows to appear, every where, every time, always. The process for how windows get 'tagged' with particular display prefs I find very unintuitive. Gah.
