  1. Photographer with file explorer problem

    Hi all *Smile

    I'm retired, and belong to a model airplane flying club, and take thousands of photos. I find it very annoying when accessing my photos on my storage drive, it takes Explorer so long to resort them by date. Why can't it sort them once by date, and just leave it? Same with videos. I have all my photography related photos set to sort by date. Windows remembers that setting, but each time the folder is opened, Explorer has to resort them again. Very time consuming and annoying. Greatly appreciate any help.


    Forgot to post system specs.
