This is the latest of weird little things Windows does to mess with my head, and I just want to briefly ask about it before I forget like I usually do.
I remember a long time ago - possibly as far back as win95, but probably win98 - if I would right-click inside of folder, go to Arrange Icons by–>Modified (back then I think it said “Date”), it would put the last file I used first.
Later on, it started putting the last file that was created first.
Now I know for sure that it’s been somewhere on the order of 2+ years since I’ve seen it put the last file used first and then all of the sudden, out of nowhere, it started doing it again yesterday!
Things like this seem to happen all the time in Windows without any apparent rhyme or reason. Does anyone have similar experiences or know what causes this stuff?
*Another thing I thought of on preview is that for about 9 months if I clicked on a media file to open Windows Media Player I wouldn’t be able to make it full screen. I would have to click on the WMP icon itself and then open the file by going to File–>Open. Then one day - again following no rhyme or reason - it started working again.
FWIW I rarely get software updates or run patches, and these little quirks never coincide with the times that I do that stuff.
