Choose "Sort By" default in OneDrive
Being able to change the default option for sorting folders by name, date, etc. yourself. Currently I have to go to each folder and choose how I want to sort the contents but would like to set a default (for example name ascending) and it will always show files within each folder in the same way
Thanks for the suggestion.

YES PLEASE - Currently driving me nuts as I sort by name as amy logical person does and when I go to move files the move to is all mixed up and I can not even read the whole folder name.
Do not understand why One drive has not done it already. Most other programmes do.
has it been done or do we still have to do it by folder
Ahh that was so easy thanks why didn't I think of that ha haha! Maybe because no one's listing?
but it is 5g of storage for nothing??
Thinking about it???
Not really good enough. OneDrive lack too many basic features like default sort and prioritising upload order.
Has this been updated?
Fix it windows! This is beyond insane!

This should be a normal built in feature. Sadly it is as lacking as it is in Windows.
For the love of sweet $%(*%%&, please allow users to organize their file folders how they wish. Alphabetical order seems like a very reasonable starting point.
You provide a service. Allow it to be the best it can be.
Thank you kindly.
The sort order I choose should be saved when closing the app automatically
Why's the sort order different on Android app than on the Windows PC app?
This is slightly annoying! I strip metadata and rename files in order. Now when the customer opens the folders the images are all over the place. Not being able to change default sorting order is a huge misstep for a file hosting site.

Dear all, please add an option so that all folders are sorted.

Doug, after 3 /12 years have you had enough thinking time?
Here's my thought after 3 /12 minutes: just do it.
Bothers me quite a bit, this would be a major improvement
Nothing else than "Thanks for the suggestion."? Is there still any dveloper alive in the OneDrive team?
OneDrive team, if you are reading this, please do something about it. You are on the verge of losing me as a customer!
I can’t believe it is still not implemented. I am about to switch to any other cloud storage because of this. Every time I want to access a picture on OneDrive (I have 500k+), I have to struggle with sort order and change it to name again and again.
This is crazy.
I struggle with the same issue that the sort order of files has to be manually changed time after time. The "save sort order" button in One Drive does not work. This is disappointing. Seems pretty basic stuff if you ask me.
DO YOU PLAN TO ADDRESS THIS ISSUE?
