    Hi Dennis, 

    Welcome to the Box Community!

    Unfortunately, we don't currently offer the feature you asked about. 
     
    If this is something you would like to be able to do, I would highly recommend submitting this feature request at pulse.box.com! Our product managers review these requests and take them into consideration for future product development.

    I don't understand.  We've been using the same Box account for over 5 years and the folders always sorted by "Name, ascending" as the default.  All of a sudden it isn't doing it.

    Yes!! Same for me. It's always sorted the same way I last sorted, but it doesn't stick any more!

    ok , a bit random , but if you navigate to "All Files" or where you start when you initially login , and set the sort order there , it will "sticks" when you navigate to other pages.

     

    I've no idea why but it seems to work

    Barry Gould, thank you so much! I agree with the rest of the users here. It was very irritating. Your tip even works when opening a brand new browser window.

    It suddenly makes Teams seem needed.  This should be the default.  Not sure why Box has is sorted by order created...doesn't make any sense

    Barry saved us all! This was driving me nuts and there is no way to reach Box. I've never found an answer in a forum before. I can't believe this worked--thank you!

    Thank you Barry! Sad that not even Box themselves could provide a answer.

    Yes, thanks Barry! Agreed that 1) Box ought to know (ie read their own user forums) and 2) seems to be different from before. Barry's suggestion was very helpful.

    Barry is the man.

    I went ahead and upvoted the Box Pulse idea and shared Barry's idea on that forum as well. Box should prioritize this feature. Low effort, high impact.

    Thanks,
