Can I have my 'select a file' dialogue box windows be the same every time they open in every program, or will I forever be..

setting 'large files' and 'add date modified' right click *again*, change sort by date modified, on everything forever? It's super frustrating. Hitting Alt and trying to set the folder options broadly just changes regular folder views.

My 'Pictures' folder keeps changing to detailed general folder view too when I keep setting it to optimize pics > apply all with a thumbnail view set too. I have turned off

In WAT.

Also side question, when you export tweaks in WAT, if you have recently set one, do you need to restart for it to count as being applied, or will it instantly be a part of the export file?

Thanks

Also this isn't strictly just windows but I'm sure youguys will have the answer, I want this key to open an elevated cmd prompt when pushed, how do I that? have it run a batch file that runs it?

Use WinSetView to designate folder views.
Create an elevated shortcut to admin cmd via winaero tweaker and use a keymapper (like powertoys or another of your preference) to map the key to the elevated shortcut. If you have to map it to a program, create a batch to launch that shortcut and map it to the batch.
