How to change the default sorting in iTunes

Does anyone know how to change the default sorting method for all items in iTunes?  I use the third option for organizing the library as a whole (the one that has a list of icons for bands that you double click to show only that band's songs).  The only sorting method I use is to sort by Album by Year (ascending), this makes the most sense to me.  I can tell that iTunes is attempting to remember when I do this for certain artists, but it epically fails at maintaining this sorting pattern.
To be clear, say I open Radiohead and click through to have it sort with the above method.  Everything works great, but when I return a few days later to play Radiohead again, the sorting is not maintained.  It could be as simple as sorting in a descending direction, or could even be trying to sort by the number it was added in my library.
I'd really appreciate it if someone knew of a way (maybe even through scripts if possible / the only solution) to eliminate this problem and have every (NOT just the artists who I've told iTunes to sort a specific way) artist sort that way.
I don't know if my copy is just corrupt?  It may be, since for some artists it's started playing them in the above mentioned order they were added to my library even if I force a sort by album by year (i.e. it will go from playing a 2007 album to a 2002 album and not the 2008 album).

Andrew, I know I am extremely late to the party but I too use Grid View.  I had the same problem that you had but have found this to work for me.  I used it and it is still holding as my default sorting even after switching between the Artist page and Grid View.
Once you are inside of the Artist page continue to click on the Album column until it shows Album by Artist/Year.
That will give you each album sorted by the year instead of it randomly sorting it for you each time you leave an Artist's page and then back again.
Hope this helps.

  • How to change the default Path of Prompt Played by MicroApp

    I need to store all the Self Service application prompts in dedicated Media Server. I can modify location of all the Media files by passing the related URL form CVP application, however I need to know how to change the default location of Prompt file played by Play Media Microapplication in ICM Scripting.
    Currently the default location taken by Play Media Micro App is the Media _Server.variable path set for VXML Server location while I have a separate Media Server.
    Please advice how we can customize the MicroApp Media path.
    Kapil Kumar

    Hi Kapil,
    Try this in your ICM script, define set variables i.e.
    set Media Server= ip address of media server
    set Locale = en-us
    set input Type = DTMF only
    set App Media Lib = " you new location i.e. test "
    So, the application path will be
    http://media server ip address/en-us/test
    hope this helps.

  • How to change the default currency in CJ32 and CJ33

    Dear all,
    As required by the user, I want to know how to change the default currency from controlling area currency to object currency in TCODE CJ32 and CJ33. Currently, the controlling area currency will be defaulted in the field "Views in".
    Could any one help me? Points will be awarded.
    Thank you.
    Edited by: Virendra Pal on May 5, 2010 8:34 AM

    Hi Christiana ,
    Once you are in tcode CJ30 / CJ32 , Enter either Project definition or WBS element and this shall take you to the Budget screen and once you are here you can find a drop down with two options .One is Controlling are currency and the other one is Object currency.
    Since the Currency is set to Object currency in OPS9, System shall allow the budget values in Object currency and if the user wants to see the same values in Controlling are currency ,then the user needs to view the values in Controlling are currency using the drop down .

  • How to change the default "Safe" files in Safari?

    I would really appreciate if anybody could teach me how to change the default "Safe" files using AppleScripts, Folder Actions or .plist files. I really would like to have some files to open automatically after download, specially .pps files, and safari doesn't recognize such files as "safe". I tried to find out reading the help files but got lost.
    I posted a reply in an old topic for somebody who seemed to know, but it was not related to that topic, so I decided to open a new one.
    I'll be gratefull for any help. Thanks.

  • How to change the default window size display font size on Lync 2013 main window?

    Hi champs,
    Just a simple non-technical question: How to change the default window size display font size on Lync 2013 main window on Windows 7 desktop?

    Did you mean change the Lync: Change the Default Font and Color of Instant Messages just as Edwin said above?
    If not, as I know, there is no natural way to change it.
    If yes, on the latest version of Lync 2013 client, there is a new option “IM” on Lync client “Options” list. And you need to change the default Font and Color of IM in the interface of “IM”.

  • How to change the default port of webdispatcher

    Hello Everyone,
    We wish to  know to how to change the default port of SAP webpatcher port from 81$$ to 80.
    Appreciate your response.

    Hello Vadi
    you have to change the PORT value in your profile parameter from 81$$ to 80
    icm/server_port_0 = PROT=HTTP,PORT=81$$ to
    icm/server_port_0 = PROT=HTTP,PORT=80
    Also, in SMICM, then change http service port and activate it and above parameter will require SAP restart
    $$ is used generally to accomodate multiple port services running in SMICM and so as to avoid the parameter setting according to instance number of any system.

    There is a workaround to move from 1.5 version to the older 1.4 version. But this could be specific to the browser setting the JRE version.
    Excerpts from sun docs:
    However, a user can still run older versions. To do so, launch the Java Plug-in Control Panel for the older version, then (re)select the browser in the Browser tab.
    Assume you are running on Microsoft Windows with Microsoft Internet Explorer, have first installed version 1.4.2, then version 5.0, and you want to run 1.4.2.
    Go to the j2re1.4.2\bin directory where JRE 1.4.2 was installed. On a Windows default installation, this would be here: C:\Program Files\Java\j2re1.4.2\bin
    Double-click the jpicpl32.exe file located there. It will launch the control panel for 1.4.2.
    Select the Browser tab. Microsoft Internet Explorer might still appear to be set (checked). However, when 5.0 was installed, the registration of the 1.4.2 JRE with Internet Explorer was overwritten by the 5.0 JRE.
    If Microsoft Internet Explorer is shown as checked, uncheck it and click Apply. You will see a confirmation dialog stating that browser settings have changed.
    Check Microsoft Internet Explorer and click Apply. You should see a confirmation dialog.
    Restart the browser. It should now use the 1.4.2 JRE for conventional APPLET tags.
    Details are here
    My system (Windows XP) has the version 1.5_09 set as the default. However i just installed JRE 1.5_06 and would like to revert back to _06 as the default JRE..
    Will update if i find more information
