On Kubuntu 19.10, I would like the Downloads folder to be sorted by date modified, and other folders to be sorted alphabetically. However, whenever I sort the Downloads folder by Date Modified, every other folder is sorted that way as well. How do I set a custom setting only for the Downloads folder?

As first step, you may have to go to:

Control > Dolphin preferences > General > Behaviour > View

and mark

Remember properties for each folder

enter image description here

Then go to:

Control > Adjust view properties

In the window that pops up, adjust the parameters as you want and then select:

Apply to: Current folder

or

Apply to: Current folder and sub-folders

    Tell me if this helps: go to Dolphin preferences > General > Behaviour > View > and mark Remember properties for each folder. Then you should see the Apply to option. Dec 11, 2019 at 23:31
  • Yes, it has worked! Thank you very much
