Tools - Settings - View - Column profiles/Automatic views - Example


This example shows how to define an automatic view for "My Documents" folder and all sub-folders with the sorting on "Modified" time-stamp.


  • If your "Automatic views" are not active, define first the "Default view" and activate the option "Switch view mode automatically on folder change":



  • Change to your documents folder in e.g. right pane. Set the detail view and sorting as you want to have it later.



  • With Shift+F1 in the right pane call the column profiles pop-up menu and select "Add current column profile specific to folder..."



  • Define the name of the new profile


 


  • With Shift+F1 in the right pane call the column profiles pop-up menu and select "Add current view specific to folder..."



  • Define the name of the new view



  • If all worked properly, you should have the settings for the automatic view "MyDocuments"



  • Change the condition so that all sub-folders can use this view.




  • Save all settings


Now as soon as you change to your Documents folder the view and sorting changes automatically.
