Change Default Virtual Machines List Sort Order Behavior on ESXi 6.7

Dear all,

Is there any way to change the default behavior of how the virtual machines list is sorted? I would like to default be by vms name, but ESXi web client always sort by vms' ID, which is not the best option for me.

I'm still struggling with that. Do you have any ideas?

Hi

I didn't understand.

Can you print screen a window?

Yes. of course. Sorry for the very long delay, I had traveled, sick, home reallocating, all in sequence.

Every time I start my ESXi,or click on another esxi page and comes back, the vms list looks like this:

I would like to vms be listed by name ascending. always.

Mine sort OK in the main window - just click on the column header to change, or on the downward chevron to access the sorting, filter and column display options menu.

But, I can find no way to sort the names in the Navigator side pane?

Hi Thomas, I can do that. What I'm looking for is a way to turn it the default behavior. Every time that I login in ESXi I need to sort it again.

Did you ever find a way to change this default behavior? I came across this post searching for the same answer.
