How to correct file and folder alphabetical sorting in Windows

I know this seems like such a simple problem, but the folder and file sorting whenever I perform Browse in any application is always in reverse alphabetical order with folders first and then files (also in reverse alphabetical order). When I select Arrange Icons By > Type, the order is corrected, but if I hit Cancel or even Open a file (this is all performed from Start > Run), the incorrect order returns. How can I make the ordering permanent?

"Try this:

Open a folder, make the arrangements you want.

Click ""Tools"" / ""Folder Options"".

Click ""View"" / ""Apply to All Folders"".

A confirmation message should appear, click ""Yes"".

Click ""OK"" to exit."
