    1) Finder is an excellent image viewer. You want gallery view, which is one of the prominent buttons visible by default in the OS version I'm using. Maximize the window, and images will be nearly full-screen. No hidden UI elements needed. It's crazy to me that there is nothing like this (?) by default in Ubuntu.

    2) Agreed, this is silly. This is likely fixed by one of the items in this very long list of power-user tweaks:

  • Can't set default Finder view anymore on Big Sur | 2021-04-16
    On a fresh 11.2.3 install I've tried to set the default "view" to "list" for Finder windows using the following:
  • Gnome 40 | 2021-03-24
  • Mathias Bynens' Sensible macOS Defaults
  • Sensible macOS Defaults | 2021-03-19 | 2021-03-19 | 2021-03-19
    For clarity, I should point out that I don't believe that all of these defaults are "sensible" for every user. I gave the submission it's title because that is how the creator refers to the file.[0]
