Recycle Bin (XP) Will Not Retain Sort Order

Discussion in 'Windows XP' started by ss, Apr 6, 2010.

    Hello...

    I like to sort the items in the recycle bin by the date deleted, but
    lately (the last few weeks or so) my recycle bin does not retain this
    sort order. Rebooting does not help.

    Any ideas on how to fix this.

    TIA
    SS

    PS - I don't use this newsgroup very often, and searching a million
    subject lines is not very productive when so many folks use
    overly-general subjects ("Help with Recycle Bin" for example). So
    please excuse me if this solution has been discussed before.

    You don't have to worry about having to check the ng first for anything
    pertaining to your subject because nothing like this has ever been posted
    before. May I ask WhyTF you care about in what order your files are in the
    Trash Can??????

    Talk about pedantic. Why don't you create a "Pre Delete" folder and place
    your crap there, then once a week you can review and actually delete the
    files you no longer want.

    But isn't that what the Recycle Bin actually does?

    Even though the files are not usable while they are in the Recycle Bin, they
    have NOT been actually deleted and can be fully restored. I always think of
    the Recycle Bin as containing files taken out of circulation and earmarked
    for final deletion.

    Yeah, but this joker wants to be able to sort items by date, which I don't
    think you can do in the recycle bin. If he/she/it creates a redundant
    folder he can sort the files however his/hers/its little heart desires.

    It's not that difficult to click the "Date deleted" header. But perhaps
    you have installed something that prevents user choices from being saved.

    There is a "Deleted date" available to View and manipulate the order with.

    Where? I don't see anything in Views pertaining to date.

    Michael...

    I try to avoid flame wars...and did my best to ignore your first few
    "answers" to my problem, but I would really appreciate if:

    (a) You didn't refer to me as "this joker" when I have a legitimate
    question...and...

    (b) You knew what you were talking about -- I have always (until
    recently) been able to sort by date deleted and have the recycle bin
    retain that sort order with each opening, (a situation you would have
    understood had you read my original post accurately).

    Once again, does anyone know how to restore this capability (which I
    know from experience exists) to the recycle bin...and please do not
    respond if all you are going to do is question my motives.

    Incidentally...the recycle bin actually does seem to retain this sort
    order for awhile...so that suggests that one of my other apps may be
    interfering at some late time...but I can't seem to tell when it loses
    the order.

    View > Choose details...

    And there are quite a few details you can show in the Recycle Bin providing
    you are in Views > Details as opposed to other views such as View > List
    where you will only see the names of the files deleted but no details. And
    as I said while you are in the Details view you can choose which details you
    want to see by going to View > Choose details...

    Quite simple really...

    I cannot figure out what is triggering the reversion back to the

    OK, let's have another and final go at this problem... else I give up!

    In any Windows Explorer view create the view you prefer and...
    click Apply it to all folders
    but also make sure that under Tools >Folder Options >View
    " Remember each folder's view settings " is ticked, ticked, ticked ;-)

    This will ensure that if you prefer a particular view for a particular
    folder, that view will be retained for that folder. You can for example use
    this so that when you open My Pictures your pictures always show up as
    Thumbnails in a particular order. You can for example to to detailed view
    select to View by Date (either escalating of descalating) and then click to
    view the thumbnails which will show up in that particular date order. For
    example I prefer mine to show the newest at the top.

    Once you Apply your preferred View to All Folders, you can then go into any
    particular folder and select a different view to that specific folder.
    Though it is a pity that one cannot apply the same view to all subfolders of
    that folder, for example to all the sub-folders of My Pictures. This would
    have saved one the bother of applying such non-standard view to all the
    subfolders of say My Pictures individually. Sorry for the verbosity but
    hopefully others will also read this and learn a useful trick.

    Hopefully this answers your question.

    Create a folder called Scooby Snacks and place your profile in it. Then

    Yes you can. Just choose the details you want to see and it will be done.
    You can see not only Date Deleted but also Create Date, Modified Date etc
    etc. I have just tried it to make sure that I am not talking off my head.
    When you click the Recycle Folder shortcut on the desktop what you get is
    just another Windows Explorer window and by clicking View > Choose
    details... you can click and select any detail you want displayed in the
    current Windows Explorer window of which the Recycle Bin is but just another
    example. Unless you apply this view to all folders, it will only apply to
    the current folder and if you had clicked Remember Each Folder's View the
    applied view will not change every time you open that folder.

    I myself prefer to see files by modified date with the latest at the top of
    the list. Makes it handy to access your latest files and files that have
    been recently modified.

    I wrote about this before. Just get up a Windows Explorer screen, arrange it
    in the sort order you want whether by name, by creation date, by Date
    Modified Date whatever. You do this in detailed view by clicking the
    headers.

    Once you have got it as you would like it go to...
    Tools > Folder Options > View and...
    Click the box for Remember Each Folder's View settings
    Click OKy OR if you want that view to apply to all settings Click Apply to
    All Folders.

    IF you click Apply that view to All Folders, any folder you open from then
    on will be displayed in that view, i.e. In Alphabetic order, in Create Date
    order or whatever. OR conversely if you just click OK without Applying that
    view TO ALL FOLDERS, then only that folder will be displayed in that
    fashion.

    Elsewhere I had written about how to add these details (columns) to the
    Windows Explorer views. I wouldn't bother trying to create a view order by
    clicking the individual columns (details) right when choosing them though.
    Choose the details first and then just drag the various details (columns) to
    where you want them to appear. For example I want the Attributes column on
    the leftmost side. Just make sure that you click Apply to All folders button
    so that all folders will show a similar display.

    IF you want a particular folder to be displayed in a different manner then
    go to that folder and apply a different view. Just make sure that the
    Remember Each Folder's View is clicked. I can assure you that whenever you
    go to that folder you will get that particular view.

    And this is easier done than said, to turn an expression on its head. It
    sounds more complex when reading about how to do it. But do it just once
    (and DO use your head, for heaven's sake) you will understand how the system
    works.

    And remember, above all USE YOUR HEAD!!!

    Thanks Bob, said the blind man. I never put too much emphasis on the
    recycle bin.

    Yah, I generally just make sure I empty it before a defrag, so every 6
    months to a year at most.
