Windows 7: Apply Sort Order to ALL Folders ???

Apply Sort Order to ALL Folders ???

For ages and ages, without me giving it a thought, no matter which folder I looked in, the contents were always listed in alphabetical/numerical order; 1, 2, 3 - A, B, C, etc; then, a couple months ago, for reasons unbeknownst to me, when I open a folder, the contents are all mixed up, with no rhyme nor reason as to their sort order.

I have figured out that I can right-click an empty space and select a sort order, but only for that particular folder.

Surely there is some way that I can make ALL folders comply to an alpha-numeric sort order in one fell swoop.

Thanks for reading and all help is appreciated.

Hello BuckSkin,

Sure, you could apply the folder view to either all folders or those using the same folder template.
