File>Open..

When I go to open files they are arranged in a random order..I can't work out which. I don't know why this has happend - it didn't used to be like this.
When I right click and arrange them by Name they rearrange. But when I close the open menu and go to reopen something the arrangement is back to the same.

The same file arrangment is the same all over the computer.

How can i set my files to arrange by name by default?

After you've rearranged your icons however you want them, go to: Tools/Folder Options/View/Apply to All Folders

Yes, if you want every folder to behave exactly the same, wyweb's procedure is correct.
