I have a folder where I store all my web icons in .png and .ico format. I set view to large icons and sort by to date modified -> descending.

When I save new icons in this folder from web, I drag and drop them from browser (chrome) to the folder. The problem is after that the icons in the folder are not sorted by date modified descending any more...

So how can I set any file or program or something that will set the sort by to date modified -> descending for that folder only each time I will access (open) the folder?

I am using window 7 x64.

I assume refreshing the folder doesn't work? –  Dave Nov 27 '12 at 11:04
@DaveRook no... sort by auto changes to custom... –  Black Cobra Nov 27 '12 at 18:25
