I've been annoyed by this for a long time but am just now researching it.
In reference to the Libraries - Documents, Videos, Music, et cetera ...
When I set the Sort By in one library the other libraries sort the same way.
And it's not always apparent right away - it may be the next time I'm looking at files that the sort order of ALL libraries has changed to the setting that I made last.
And additionally - it seems that some libraries are immune from this.
Music, Pictures, Videos seem to be immune.
I could live with this if Documents was also immune but when I set the sort order of my Downloads Library (I made a downloads library) that eventually affects the sort order of the Documents Library. Then when I change the Documents Sort By back to name the Sort By in Downloads changes to name as well.
You guys noticed this?
Thanks a lot!
