Right click "Arrange By" Options No Longer Stay Customized

I've been having trouble keeping the right click "Arrange By" options customized... I have to keep going through the list and re-checking the options I need - (i.e. - Date Modified - Size - Etc). This problem started a few months ago... I'm not sure what caused it - or how to fix it.

I have a W7 64-bit OS.

Hello Rick, and welcome to Seven Forums.

If you like, resetting all folder views back to default may allow them to stick afterwards.

Sometime over the last few weeks Google's "More" drop-down and its "Search Tools" menu items have quit working in IE10. The other buttons that let you select web, images, shopping, etc. still work properly. The "More" and "Search Tools" buttons get focus when the mouse is over them and they...
