Setting default sorting options for folders? Solved

    Setting default sorting options for folders?

    Is there a way to set a default sorting method for files in folders (by sorting I mean whether files in folders are sorted by date, name or whatever)?

    When I change the settings through the right click menu it only applies to the folder I'm in at the moment.

    Hello Alfred, :)

    You could use the method in the tutorial below to apply a folder view to all folders.

    Actually, to accomplish what I need its necessary to combine that tutorial with this

    Folder View - 'Apply to Folders' in Windows 10

    but I was able to find it through your link.

    Yep, that's part of the tutorial I posted. I just linked it in the tutorial to save space to not have to repeat the same steps in it.
