When downloading a torrent with a large folder hierarchy, I often find myself losing overview of the content of the torrent as Transmission shows the entire folder structure expanded under Properties > Files.

Most annoyingly, if one collapses the tree and closes the dialog, the tree will be expanded again if one re-access it.

I've been through Options (of course), but it the choice is not available.

Is it somehow possible to set Transmission to show torrent content as collapsed by default? Something I can change to 'false' in some file somewhere?


Unfortunately, you can't. You must manually collapse the folders.

You could do this by clicking on folder with ctrl/cmd button pressed down.

I know, this question like 5 years old, but I'll probably forget this solution and google it again.
