Windows 10: View settings not saved for special folders (desktop, download..)

    View settings not saved for special folders (desktop, download..)


    Hi everyone,

    I've made the switch to Windows 10 for about a week or so now. So far almost everything is working just as I wanted, except some sorting annoyances with File Explorer.

    For unknown reasons, file sort settings for special folders like Desktop, Documents, Download are not saved. I always sort my files/folders by date (Descending: New above, old below) so that I can access to files that I use the most or recent downloaded file. The sort setting seem to work with all folders except the mentioned above. Moreover, the sorting for these folders seem to be random (not 100% sure). For instance, my Desktop would sort files and folders by Name, while my Download folder sorts file by Date (but ascending!).

    In all.. those special folders are a mess! I have to move forward and backward non-stop between them as I work but their settings just keep resetting!
    I should probably move my working folders to some other location and forget about it. But doing that mean I have to make changes for all my PCs so I'd like to explore a fix before making those changes.

    Any helps, tweaks to fix this will be greatly appreciated!
    Thanks!
