XP Pro – How to change sorting preferences of File Dialog

PROBLEM DETAILS
-For some reason, whenever I Opened or Saved a file, the File Dialog showed my files and folders not in alphabetical order as it used to, but as “Last modified”… So for some reason, it seemed the Open/Save File Dialog window’s default sorting option changed.

Now, it’s interesting to know something can change that!

 

THE QUESTION
-How to change sorting preferences of File Dialogs?

 

THE SOLUTION – Sirus version
-Open Windows Explorer (Windows Key + E), select drive C: and sort to your liking. Now HOLD Ctrl key + click Close [X] button top right.

 

-The File Dialog default view will now be the same as the one you chose, no restart requires and Windows Explorer’s individual folder view stays unchanged.
-For all the details of how I was able to solve this, check the post I made on Microsoft Technet! :
