    Set Explorer to ALWAYS display folder content sorted by "Type"?


    How can I set Explorer to ALWAYS display folder content sorted by "Type"? Can that be set regardless of other folder/view options?

    Thanks, but I don't see any option to select "Type" as a default option for all folders. I see general categories like Pictures and Documents.

    Hello Calypso Art, :)

    You would basically use the links in the steps in the tutorial posted above to first set all folders to use the same template (ex: "General items"), set the folder view to how (ex: "Type") you want, and then apply to all folders.
