    New File explorer - default an abomination


    Hi folks

    Who else like me (For Eng scholars me is correct -- Cambridge UK graduates think it should be "Like I" however use the plural and nobody would say "Like WE " in this contest -- they'd always say "Like US" !!! -- only mention because that cost my colleague in a Bar today 4 pints of great Beer !!!!!!!!!) thinks that the change to the default layout of File explorer in the next (slow / fast / skip ahead) builds are an abomination -- default shows changes by Date -- for me I prefer the old standard way of doing it by file name etc -- add all these extra bits to display it but don't change the defaults which I assume most people are happy with.

    As we say in Engineering -- "If it Ain't broke -- don't fix it " !!

    Cheers

    Agreed. But after 4 pints I might not even care.

    Ok, which brand of beer?

    Sounds like you are talking about previews. Can you post some screenshots, for us troglodytes who are not in the preview program.

    @jimbo45 - should that be 'for we'?
