I typed in 7d, I didn't request a 4 letter year, it seems to be the system default - how do I change this to a 2 digit year?

To adjust the column width, make sure you have the column labels showing (turn on the view bar with View->Show View Bar), then drag the separator between the column labels as necessary. Getting the settings to stick is a little bit fiddly; a perspective will save and restore the columns if you have the Restore Layout box checked in the perspective. To set the default settings, you need to close all but one window, set the columns as you want them, then close that last window. You would be forgiven for thinking that wasn't immediately obvious :-)
Thanks, will try that :)
