Today I'm doing work that needs sort-by-type. Every single time I change folder, I have to re-sort that folder by type.
Tomororow, when I'm looking for a file by name ... Every single time I change folder, I'll have to re-sort that folder AGAIN.
The "make everything have the same default" hacks (various great question/answers here on SU) solved half the problem, but to make them work in Windows10 (which has a really stupid "if I see a folder full of e.g. .MP3 files, I will force you to view them in a terrible way" set of design mistakes) seems to force Windows10 to fallback on making every folder unique, and wiping your settings continuously while using it.
TL;DR: all I want is a file explorer that - while I'm using it - carries on working as it's been told to; not continuously trying to change every time I click on a folder :)
