Is there a way to make Windows (7,8,10,whatever) remember a different sort-order for displaying your files in regular Explorer windows vs. open-file/file-browser dialog windows?
To give an example. When I open up regular ol' Explorer, say from the taskbar or Win+E or My Computer, etc. -- I want to look at the files sorted alphabetically (grouped folders first, then files) -- i.e. the standard default view. Great!
But when I go into an application and go to "File -> Open" (or any kind of similar operation) and the application does so using the standard Windows file-browser/open-file dialog, I want that view to sort by Date-Modified descending (i.e. latest on top).
Am I really the only one who would find this extremely helpful, to be able to customize this a bit? Right now, say, if I sort the view in the open-file/browser window, by date-mod-descending, and then a few minutes later I open up a standard Explorer window, that window is now also sorted by date-mod-descending. I don't want that! So now (because I'm freaking OCD), I have this ridiculous habit of, whenever I'm opening a file from an application, I sort-by date-mod-desc, pick the file out, then revert it to sort-by-name-asc before I close the dialog-window (i.e. hit "OK" or "Open").
Any ideas? (Besides the obligatory "stop being so dang OCD, man!" response)
