  1. Sub folders "sort by" affects main folder and vice versa


    So this has been bugging me ever since Windows 10 rolled out in our country. If I recall correctly, in windows 7, folder sorting could be independent. If I sorted a sub folder for date modified and the main folder was originally sorted for name, the sorting of the sub folder wouldn't change the main folder. In windows 10 though, if I change one, the other one follows suit. Is there any way around this?

    :)

    By Company name sorting ?

    i doubt it as the phone will only allow you to sort by name " first, last name or vice versa".

  3. auto sync pictures from between phone and folder on computer.

    Very simple. I have "all" selected in my sync options, which means that changes made on my phone should mirror changes made in my monitored and zune folders, and vice/versa. This is not happening.
