Windows 7: I want folders to stay sorted by "Date Modified".

I want folders to stay sorted by "Date Modified".

So I have 2 folders on my desktop that I like to keep ordered by "date modified". So I go into the folder, sort it by "date modified", do my business, and exit the folder. After awhile, if I go back into said folder, it forgets that I ordered it by "date modified" and auto orders it by name instead. Is there any way I can keep all folders ordered by "date modified" without having them go back to another order after I close said folder?
