I have my downloads folder sorted by name and that works fine through file explorer but when I download a file via the browser, doesn't matter which, the window that opens in the downloads folder to save the file is sorted by date which would only be useful if I knew when I last accessed the folder in downloads I saving to. Can anybody tell me how to get this window to show the downloads folder sorted by name?

Windows has an odd obsession with sorting some folders by Group, and it resets over time even if you switch off grouping. This also happened in Windows 10. I found this tool can fix these issues
