Since I have to look for spammers on a daily basis, I always want to see the Users overview, in the wp-admin pages, ordered by date (descending).
I have no idea why this is not a default option or setting, but with this little code this will be done automatically:

(copy the code into the functions.php of your theme)

// Start the users overview with users sorted by date

function t4a_default_users_by_date($args){
    if ( empty( $args['orderby'] ) ) {  
        $args["orderby"] = "user_registered";
        $args["order"]   = "DESC"; 
      }
        
    return $args;
}

add_filter("users_list_table_query_args","t4a_default_users_by_date");

This will sort only if no sort order has been set (that's what it starts with).

Adding the code above to your theme's functions.php file fixes the default sorting order 😊
