If you find a way to do this, please pass it on to me. I've been trying everything!
And yes, I want all of my files, everywhere to be sorted by type. I recognize I can do each file individually but sometimes they revert back to name sort. Very frustrating. There are also many, many files to do this for so a global 'type' sort is most wanted.

I'm not understanding...do you mean ALL files, including system files, program files, data files?
I am failing to see just what this would accomplish, other than create havoc for Windows and programs installed...which all expect to find a given file in a preconfigured given location.
Data files...I do this type of sorting with my data files but I use partitions and folders to group them (e.g., Music, Graphics, Backups, etc.).

I mean data files with mixed media in particular but I don't mind if the others are sorted by type as well.
I have all my folders already grouped by topic. Within each topic are other folders grouped by subject and within those - subsets of subjects, etc much like a file cabinet. Within each folder there are combinations media: videos, documents (different types), other folders, pictures, etc. pertaining to that folder much like a file cabinet. When I open any one of these folders, I want the mixed media in it to be sorted by type.
For example: In one folder, the 'type' sort places the additional file folders on top, followed by Adobe Acrobat Documents, Executable jar files, jpeg pictures, flv, MS Office Powerpoint 97, MS Office Powerpoint presentations, MS Office Word 97 documents, MS Office Word docs, mp4 videos, PNG pics, XLS file.
I can choose the sort option to sort the information in each file by type (with results as described in the example given) but I want to do it globally rather than every time I open a folder. It gets quite tedious to do this for each folder with so much information (Terrabytes already grouped and partitioned) into the order I need to work with it.
