Settings - default sort by nameAnswered
It seems this is a hot topic. Most people sort files and folders so they will sort alphabetically or numerically in the list view. How can I set this by default? It can be time-consuming to resort documents every time I open a folder.

You can sort your files and folders by Name, Date Modified, and Size. Simply click the appropriate header to sort. Click the squares icon to show the files in a grid image format. Click the lines icon to show the files in a list format.
For numbered files that go into double digits (or higher), "0" must be used to fill digit spaces for the numbers to display correctly. For example, if you have a list of items that goes to 15, use "01" instead of "1" for the order to display correctly.
Note: The sort configuration is based on what is set on the All Files page. If you have it sorted by date on the All Files page, then all contents within folders will follow that format. In a single session you can sort by name, but as soon as that folder is closed, it will go back to date.
