Windows Explorer fails to auto-sort files that are modified in the same window or at the same time in the Open/Save Dialog box. For instance saving documents in Word does not affect the "Date modified list" and the new file is placed at the bottom of the list.
A new item in the Explorer Window ignores the default sorting and is dropped at the end of the list.
What does work:
- Pressing F5.
- Reopening the folder.
- Changing back and forth the sorting order. Same result as F5.
What doesn't work:
New files are not automatically sorted.
Auto-sorting in an Explorer window with changes made by an "Open and Save As Dialog Box".
Note: The "Save Dialog Box" auto-sorts properly on it's own.
I tried the solution listed here for Windows 7 and it did not work for WIndows 10.
Distro: Windows 10 Pro Retail.
