Order of folder contents after editing a file

4 posts in this topic

When you edit a Word document, Explorer places it at the bottom of the folder's file list - even though the list is sorted with the most recent file at the top. To see the new file you always have to click twice on Date Created. It there some parameter you can set so that the new file appears at the top by default?

Thanks..

That is the explorer.exe behavior and AFAIK has nothing to do with Office or Word.

Can just hit F5 key to refresh explorer.

You might want to ask in the correct forum for your OS (or ask a mod to move this thread for you). XP explorer behavior is completely different from the Explorer in Windows 7. You never know, some of the mad scientists around here might have an add-on that does just this ?? one can only hope.

Not sure if you are talking about in the actual explorer window or do you mean the Open/Save file dialogs. (confused after reading your other post about googlemail attachments) :wacko::blink:
