    Win Explorer sort order won't "stick"

    Window Explorer is so happy to put my recently accessed folders at the top of the sort order for all my folders. I find this very difficult to use and want to sort it by name and have that STICK. I have to do this every time I go to any folder. I cannot find a setting to make this annoying behavior go away. Please advise.

    That is very strange because mine works the way things did in XP and Vista. If I have Windows Explorer open I can Right Click in the right hand pane and select Sort By or Group, etc. In the Sort By area the Drop Down shows the following:

    Mine too, but the next time I open it it's not sorted the way I left it. Windows puts the most recently accessed folders on top.
