I have 5 folders in a library and each folder is tie a specific content type. I have noticed that users with contribute access can change the content type of the folder by clicking "change new order button" from the folder ... menu. for example, if "folder 1" is tie to "data management" content type and user click the "change new order button" and change it another content type. How can I prevent that?
