    Seeking ways to change this File Explorer behavior


    When browsing folders to check/edit their contents using the Details view option, I notice that File Explorer has the following behavior:

    - I open a folder then go back

    - File Explorer puts that last visited folder in its bottom

    When browsing folders that way, one goes most of times from top to bottom, so I think File Explorer should position the last visited folder on the top of the list. Putting it on the bottom is somewhat annoying.

    Is there a way to change that? TIA.

    Windows 10 Pro 1909 18363.959

    :)

    Explorer Seeking Forever / Thumbnails not showing

    Changed everything to general including subfolders. Onedrive disabled, restarted as well, ensured its not on.

    Issue persists *Sad

    - - - Updated - - -

    So the issue starts in this sequence. First it shows a list of files, and their names go blank one by one until its all gone and then all the files load. When the files load, it'll be all blank white pages. And then if I close explorer and reopen I get nothing and a green bar loading.

    Wierd File Explorer Behavior


    Just wondering if this is happening to anyone else. Whenever I right click on a shortcut and select 'Open File Location' of course File Explorer opens up as it should to the location that the shortcut points to. The weird thing is that when I close File Explorer, it immediately reopens and I have to close it again for it to stay closed. This does not happen if I merely open File Explorer directly. To eliminate the possibility that it is a problem with my mouse I repeated these steps using only the keyboard to navigate through these steps...still happens. It would be interesting to see if this is a problem only with my system or is it a Windows 10 10240 glitch.
