Hi, looks like the recent upgrade on Win 11 has enabled some sort of default sorting titles on the contents of my folders. I've been able to manually remove the sorting by going to SORT-->GROUP BY--> (NONE) . However, it's tedious to do this for every folder and I'm not sure the settings even stick. Is there a way to default this to None for all folders/subfolders?

There are some serious bugs in n Windows 11 in regards to folder views, especially with removable drives and network volumes.

Regardless, you may want to try WinSetView. It allows you to change the folder view defaults. The settings survive Windows updates.

See discussion here.
