Why is it always ordered by size descending ??

Hi experts,
This is a little very annoying bug for me.
Each time I get the window to open a file (in all applications) it starts with a 'list' view with all the filenames with no order apparently. Then when I switch to 'details' view it is always ordered by size descending.
I don't know how this started a few weeks ago.
Any suggestion to control it??
Best regards.

once you've set the current one to the way you'd like it
Click Tools/Folder Options
View tab - Apply to all folders
that should do it

or for xp
Download this registry tweak and run it,,,

2. Increase Folder View Size Limit to 8000

After that open any folder and set the view as DETAILS(or whatever)
then goto TOOLS>FOLER OPTIONS>VIEW and click on APPLY ON ALL FOLDERS

the DETAILS view will be set for every folder u open !!!

The Common Dialog views cannot be customized (but a third-party add-on seems to do it). For the sort order, try this:

Sort the files/folder per your wish, and then press the CTRL key, and close the Window (using the [X] button at the top)

Contents of the Open and Save As Dialog Boxes Sorted Incorrectly:
