How do I change the default sort in win 7?
currently my window folders sort by filename as the factory default. I know I can change this by right clicking on the white space and then choosing how I want my files to be displayed.
however I have huge folders and then have to wait for explorer to reindex the files every time I close or open a folder.
How do I change the default file sort from name to date? so that I don't have to do this every time.
I have looked that this link
and others connected to it but they dont' seem to address my specific problem. I don't want to change icons or layout, simply the way files are organized when they are compiled.
can anyone help me out with this? Im not a noob to windows by any means, but a step by step explanation would be much appreciated.
