    I got the "sort by +Date created" but how do I invoke the "ascending" or "descending"?
    One question though. How do I set that? Do you know?

    Click the Columns button. Then click the Sort 1 column heading button to switch between ascending and descending. Click the Help button to see the manual for more details.

    Got it! Did a RTFM! Was wondering what this "t" was about and why. 😂
    The column width is not in pixels, right? I had entered the same value (200) as in explorer but got a huge width.
    Lastly, which Folder/file stores the custom configurations?

    Column widths are in ems. You can Alt-click to enter values in pixels. Details in manual. Settings are stored in AppData\Win10.ini. That will usually be the AppData folder where WinSetView.exe is located, but will be within your %AppData% folder if you put WinSetView in a protected folder like Program Files.

    Didn't realize that you are the author of this nifty little utility!
    Great work!
    Will study/play with it over the weekend and perhaps bother you with questions or suggestions…��

    Can you setup WinSetView to Chocolatey package builder? (Chocolatey Software | Chocolatey - The package manager for Windows) Thus any subsequent updates?

    Thanks for the suggestion, but it doesn't look like something I'll be doing. From what I can determine, via a quick scan of the documentation, it would be a significant effort for me to get it set up and it appears to be more applicable to "installed" applications, versus standalone portable apps.

    A problem emerged.
    Before when I set of folders to one of the 5 types i.e. "pictures" the setting remained retained.
    Now it does not any longer.
    For example if I customize a folder named "images" do be optimized as "pictures" and set accordingly in WinSetView under "pictures" as "extra-large icons" 256, folders that have been previously set to be optimized as "pictures" default to "general items".
    At least upon restart.
    All the folders I had as part his example set to identify as "pictures" seem to now stubbornly defaulted to "general items".

    Any clues?

    That's a known issue with Windows 11 and removable drives. Is this happening on Windows 10?

    Yep! Windows 10.
    No removable drives, all HDD & SSD.
