This is a really minor issue. But is it possible to have the "Select Media" browser default to the tree view as opposed to list view? I imagine there would be a config setting somewhere. I just feel it would create better interaction and would also be one less click for most of our users.
In Sitecore 7.1-7.5 there is a configuration file called Sitecore.Speak.config in the include folder. In that file find the following line:
<override xmlControl="Sitecore.Shell.Applications.Media.MediaBrowser" with="/sitecore/client/Sitecore/Common/Dialogs/SelectMediaDialog" />
And replace it with this
<override xmlControl="Sitecore.Shell.Applications.Media.MediaBrowser" with="/sitecore/client/Sitecore/Common/Dialogs/SelectMediaViaTreeDialog" />
In Sitecore 8+, this particular configuration has been moved to a file called Sitecore.Speak.Applications.config
