Windows 10: Sub folders "sort by" affects main folder and vice versa

    Sub folders "sort by" affects main folder and vice versa

    So this has been bugging me ever since Windows 10 rolled out in our country. If I recall correctly, in windows 7, folder sorting could be independent. If I sorted a sub folder for date modified and the main folder was originally sorted for name, the sorting of the sub folder wouldn't change the main folder. In windows 10 though, if I change one, the other one follows suit. Is there any way around this?
