Windows 7: Permanently Add to 'Sort By' Menu

Permanently Add to 'Sort By' Menu

I'm sick of having to often click Sort By>More>Date Modified.

I want "Date Modified" to always be an option on every 'Sort By' menu.

But I don't want to automatically set all folders to look any particular way, I just want the option in the menu.

Taglock, Welcome to the windows 7 forum.

Can I assume your using windows explorer? If so, then all you have to do is click the column heading and it will
sort in that order.

There aren't usually any column headings when I'm viewing folders. I prefer either list view or large icons. I only see column headings on 'details' view.

permanently lock taskbar and start menu
Is there a way to permanently lock items on the task bar and start menu? I can for example lock the taskbar, but can still drag icons onto or from it and rearrange them. I want to lock everything permanantly so no one can screw them up. I'm using Home Premium.
