I use two computers: one automatically creates .Bridgesort files and the other does not. I like to have them as I need to save my sorts: is there a setting that I can change?
You can't. Bridge creates those if you have a custom sort in a folder.
That's what's puzzling me. I have custom-sorted my folder, and yet no .BridgeSort file appears. But if I do it on the other computer, it creates one.
What operating system and where is your folder?
I'm using Windows 10. It's on an organisational shared drive, and, as I say, when accessing it from one computer it works just fine, but not from the other.
Most likely a permissions issue.
Thank you for taking the time to think about it. I have realised that the "hidden items" box in File Explorer > View was unticked on one of my computers!
