Hi guys,

When viewing a fodler containing a large number of files, ( in my case mp3's ) i like to keep them in order of date created. Just a preference.
Every now and then, i right click, choose arrange by.. then hit name.
To get them back to the state where they're arranged by date created, i have to add Date Created to the options ...
This is done as im sure you already know, by clicking View, then choose details, where we are treated to a number of options to add or remove from the "Arrange By... " list....

My problem is, .. why does this list reset afer every reboot, why cant i make my change to this permanent ??

Its a petty thing i know, but just one thats under my skin and cant figure out how to sort it out.....

Please help !
If there really was a god, then why is my ass the perfect height for kicking ???

Hi carnivalofsorts & :thumbsup: to BC.

Try this.....

Open your "My Docs" folder.

Click on the view button and select DETAILS

Then click on the DATE MODIFIED column heading.
(You may have to do this twice so the most recent file is at the top).


That should now be set to display by date and not folder or files.

Jack The Hack, thank you so much for your help on that one.
Its one of those annoying things that you're sure there's a solution to, but in the end i just had to give up and ask someone....
Appreciate it.
