    With my (self built) PC at home each folder and sub folder remembers individually what it's being sorted by, so for example:


    Documents is in alphabetical order, and the contracts sub folder is ordered by date modified.

    For some reason my office computer, made by Scan, the sort by seems to be global. If I go into contracts and sort by date modified, when I go back/up a directory my previous alphabetically ordered Documents will now be ordered by date as well.

    This is astonishingly irritating, and I can't for the life of me work how to change this or why it's happening. Please help!
