I am trying to get my folders to arrange icons and files in list view (and other views) by the most recent date and retain this setting for all folders. When I select View|Arrange Icons|by Date, the icons and files are arranged from the oldest to the newest. I want it from the newest to the oldest. The only way I have been able to do this is to click on the column heading bar in Details view to sort the files newest to oldest then return to List view. In Tools|Folder Options on the View tab I click on the "Like Current Folder" button, but the settings are not retained. It worked in W98 but I am missing something in W2K.
