> When inserting a file, usually a picture file or even uploading a picture
> file onto the internet, a window will pop up and you'll see a list of files
> to choose from.
> Here, sometimes the files appear as "Thumbnails" and arranged by "Type" but
> sometimes they appear as "lists" and sorted by "name."
> Each time I would have to right click and change "view" and "arrange icon
> by" to my preference, which is sometimes 'thumbnails and modified,' and
> sometimes 'type and name,' depending on application.
> But, as soon as I am finished they would go back to the default view that is
> either 'thumbnail and type' or 'list and name.' And I have to do it all over
