Is it possible to change the default view when selecting the Files option in the menu? I would like to set this to my favourites to avoid another click. Lazy I know, but every click counts!
Thats not easily possible. Maybe something you like to propose for the newest frontend development effort: https://github.com/owncloud/phoenix
Why not just make your-cloud.org/index.php/apps/files/?dir=/&view=favorites a bookmark in your browser? If you are not logged in, you will be redirected there after login.
