customize sorting order Independently

Post by *leo007 » 2019-11-07, 17:01 UTC

Hi Everyone,
is there a way to customize sorting order for each path / Folder independently?

Examples:
Downloads folder sort by Date,
Documents folder sort by Name

many Thanks in Advance

Yes, you can do it by using View Modes and Auto Switch Mode.

Put the default mode to be sorted by Name (for example) - default it is "Unchanged" (otherwise when you will mode from downloads folder to another folder in same tab the date sort will remain active)
Then create a new view mode "downloads_sorted" for downloads folder - with Sort by Date and descending marked.

Then in Auto Switch Mode create a new mode with rule for directory and directory name to be your downloads folder and set the mode to be previously defined mode "downloads_sorted".
