    File explorer sort reverts to "date modified"

    Every disk and/ or folder when I tick sort by name-ascending the damn thing reverts to date modified-descending if I leave said disk or folder and return. I tried "Enable_Auto_Arrange_in_File_Explorer.bat" and "Reset_Folder_View_Settings_of_All_Folders_to_Default.bat" courtesy of Brink to no avail.

    Is there a way to get file explorer back to default sort (by name-ascending) for all disks, folders and sub-folders at once?

    It was all fine last week and I've no recollection of playing with any settings. Very frustrating.
    Thank You.
