Sort order in file open/save dialogs

    I don't remember any other Windows versions doing this, and I don't think
    I've changed anything myself in x64 to make it do it, but either way it's
    driving me nuts: file open/save dialogs are always sorted in what appears to
    be semi-random order. Even when opening the same dialog in succession in the
    same application this happens every time, so if you want it in some other
    order, you have to change it every single time.

    Is there a way to override this behaviour and either (for preference) make
    it remember how the file open/save dialog was last sorted or (as a last
    resort) make it always sort in name order?

  4. It's not necessarily a 64 bit Windows thing. A colleague of mine has the
    same behavior on his XP Pro machine. The file selector box displays in a
    ssemingly random order. Often but not always. He needs to show details and
    sort by name to straighten it out. Haven't seen it elsewhere....
