Recycle bin sort order keeps going back to name

    I sort by date, but every so often the recycle bin keeps going back to
    sorting by name. At least when the system is turned off/on and sometimes
    even while it is running. I have the option to Remember each folder's view
    settings on, and as far as I can tell the other folders don't have this
    problem, it is only the recycle bin that keeps resetting the view by itself.

    Why is this a "big deal"? The recycle bin is a garbage can...are you using it as a storage bin? It matters not whether it is sorted or not in most cases.

    If you need to "occasionally" have it sorted then change the view setting for that one time.

    Pedantry rules supreme in your house apparently.

    In Recycle Bin go to Tools/Folder Options/view and select Apply to All Folders -- if
    that's what you want. I'm not sure that individual folders remember their settings.

    Uh, no? Feel free to link a previous thread if it will help with the answer,
    otherwise welcome to a public newsgroup where some people may have the same
    question.
