Folder options?

Hello,

I want my recycle bin to always be in list view and sorted by date deleted.
How can I change the default settings?

Thanks,
Patrick

The list view you can set on the top right. When you right click on the page, you can Group by Date deleted.

Hello Trogne,

You can open the Recycle Bin, set the view to "Details", then close the Recycle Bin. When you open the Recyle Bin next, it should still be set to "Details". A folder will open to how it was set when it was last closed.

Hope this helps,
Shawn

Hello,

No. When I change the folder view in my recycle bin, the next time I open the recycle bin it would be back to "Tiles" view.

I put it to details. Close recycle Re-open. Still "Tiles" view.
