The most frequently preferred methods I have for viewing files in folders are alphabetically, and order of addition or "date created", respectively. While the former has always been a standard option whenever attempting to set a folder's preference to "Arrange Icons by" , Date Created by default is never among the options, and instead must be continually added through the "choose details" option. I've tried setting this repeatedly through the Control Panel's Folder Options, but it never seems to take, and/or remain a simple default option, among those intially provided whenever right- clicking in any folder to arrange. What gives? Additionally, I've used the "modified" option, and found it rather handy, but applicable only for a single use, as it continues to modify the views. If a new file is again added to the folder, finding it through the modify view becomes a shell game.
