For some reason unknown the Explorer window [& other related windows] now presents the files in date order rather than alphabetical.
[My Computer window lists in alphabetical File Type order !!]

Despite resetting via Tools/Folder Options/View/Like Current Folder/Yes/Apply or OK
to the desired alphabetical presentation, the next such window opened reverts to date order.

How do I convince Windows 98SE2 to remember such settings ?

Have you ensured that only one Explorer window is open when you apply the desired settings?

Yes only a singlewindow open

When you close Explorer hold down the Ctrl key before clicking on the X to close the window and keep holding it down until the Explorer window has gone.

See this page for more info:

Hopefully that will fix it.
