Organizer 13 Album sort order

I am quite new to Photoshop Elements and I found that Organizer had some really nice features.

After a short while I noticed that the sort order in the album view was a problem. I could set it to date, oldest first which I prefer but the next time I use Organizer the sort order is reset to date, newest first.

Is this the normal behaviour or have I missed some setting?

It's different for me.
First note that the sort order applies to the various views:
- thumbnail view
- folders view
- album view (with the additional 'album order' option)

There is no way to set a default order. The choice in the organizer is to keep the last used one. That means that I always find the last order I had chosen when I reopen the organizer.
If I stay in 'album view', once I set the order, it stays the same in the editing session.
The 'album sort order' is set when I swith from thumbnail or folders view to the album view. If I set the 'older first' option once, it stays 'sticky' if I stay in the album view when changing albums.

If your choice is not 'sticky' when you reopen the organizer, that is different from my experience (PSE11, 12 or 13) in Windows 7.

Thanks for the reply.

I thought that the behaviour of my Organizer was indeed odd. I run Win 7 and PSE 13, a program I bought about a month ago.

No, my choice is not "sticky", when I get back to an Album, from another view or after a restart of the program I always have the first sort order in the menu, date, newest first, regardless of my choice in an earlier session.
A funny thing is that if I have two Albums and set a sort order in one of them, the second Album gets the same sort order.

I have tried different tricks, I have run as administrator, yesterday I even reinstalled Photoshop but the problem is still there.
As I write this I got an update to 13.1 but there is no change.

Any help about this would be much appreciated.
