Is it possible to sort by 'Filename' instead of 'Relevance Ranking' by default each time I perform a new search?

I really don't need anything other than Filename option, so maybe there will be a way to workaround in the Windows registry if it's not possible to set in Acrobat preference?

Yes, I would like to sort search results by file name as default option.

Maybe there is a workaround by setting specific Windows registry (regedit) options?

Who in the world thought it was a good idea to not only make the least user-friendly and logical option the default, but also to make it impossible to change the default?

 

It's one thing if it was at least a session thing, but no – it reverts to the utterly meaningless ‘relevance ranking’ every single time you perform a search. That is mind-bogglingly poor UI design, even for Acrobat’s standards.
