Windows 7: Folder Layout keeps changing

16 Jan 2015   #1

Folder Layout keeps changing

Having issues when in a folder. The layout will automatically go back to details even if I change to large/medium icons, list, etc. If I have the folder sorted by date modified it returns to alphabetical.

Really annoying, any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
