    Any Way to Disable the Auto Arranging of Files for Specific Folders?


    Hey,

    Anybody happen to know how to disable Win 10 auto arranging files in a folder? You can obviously sort them in numerous way, but for certain folders I want to be able to manually rearrange my files (folders that contain music tracks). Apparently in WIn 8.1 you could right click in a folder, go to sorting and unclick "Auto Arrange", but that option doesn't seem to be available in Win 10. Thanks.

    :)

  2. Rearranging picture order in Windows 7 and Windows 10

    The developers removed the Auto-Arrange option in Windows 7. Either of these third party fixes will add it back so you can disable it.

  3. File Explorer - Auto Sort

    Hi Michael,

    Welcome to Microsoft Community.



    I appreciate your interest on windows 10.



    I understand the inconvenience you faced. We certainly help you with this issue.
    I want to inform you When you disable auto arrange, and either unzip a file in a folder, move a folder, or rename a folder, it will refresh and auto arrange the files in that specific folder only after each time you do this. Auto arrange is still disabled
    for that folder, but you will need to arrange the files back to whatever non-auto arranged order you like again after unzipping a file in a folder, move a folder, or rename a folder.


    I would suggest you to follow the below link to fix issue.

    Follow the link:
    http://windows.microsoft.com/en-IN/windows-8/files-folders-windows-explorer

    Note: It is also applicable for windows 10 as well.

    Hope this helps. If the issue remains unresolved, please get back to us and we would be happy to help.



    Thanks.
