FILES ICONS VIEW

The folders and files icons in my computer used to be sorted by <<name>> and <<details>> by default.

Something changed this original arrangement and now they seem to be arranged at random.

How can I return the files of all folders and sub-folders to their original arrangement without having to do this manually ( through view->arrange icons->by name) each time I get inside a folder ?

go into a folder and manually do >arange icons> by name

then goto folder view tools>folder options>View

look for the section that says you can set all folders to current view and click the button that says like current folder and all your folders will arrange like the view in the folder your in
