    Avoid Windows serch info into files when sorting


    Hi, I love whern Windows is very simple and fast, sometime I really don't need "plus" that slow me down working.

    One of them is when for example I would open a photo folder and open immediatly the most recent pictures. In very old windows this folder was opened very quickly as it can contain unknown files, and it was necessary to sort by date to have really fast response. Now every time it open that folder it takes minutes only to show files (**I have disabled already thumbnails!!**) and if I click on sort, double work. Really annoying.

    I suppose that windows search inside the files jpg some info, and it does for eavery jpg file. How can I teach Windows "please consider jpg as unkow files, I don't need your extra services?"

    Also, I would lovely that windows doesn't recognize any kind of file when it wants to look inside of it pretending find some datas, I don't need mp3 artist, I don't need movie infos, etc. And when I open a folder I would love that it display as usually the name, date of last modification, size.. **always**. I hate when I open a music folder and I need always to manually select date of last modification.

    Thank you a lot for your kind help!

    :)

    GPUz Incorrect Info GF117

    I've got the GT620M in a Zenbook and the newest version of GPUz has it listed as a 40nm part whereas all other info on the web suggests its 28nm. Can you investigate, W1z?

    Thanks

    sort folders and files in explorer

    Hi Greg,

    You can filter the folders and files in File Explorer using the Sort by option. To best address your concern, we need you to answer the following questions:

    • What do you mean when you mentioned “files sorted by latest first”?
    • You mentioned that you were able to perform it before, which Windows version were you using that time?
    • Can you provide us a detailed description of what you would like to perform?

    In the meantime, you can try the following steps:

    • Go to File Explorer.
    • Click the Drive where the files and folders are saved.
    • Under Current view, click Sort by.
    • Select Name if you would like to sort it alphabetically. Choose
      Date modified or Date created if you wanted to sort it by date. Refer to the image below.

    Please take note that you can’t apply two filters at a time.

    Looking forward for your response.

    Windows 10 Tweaks

    Pressing “Windows+Pause Break” (it’s up there next to scroll lock) opens the “System” Window.

    Windows 10: In the new version of Windows, Explorer has a section called Quick Access. This includes your frequent folders and recent files. Explorer defaults to opening this page when you open a new window. If you’d rather open the usual This PC, with links to your drives and library folders, follow these steps:

    • Open a new Explorer window.
    • Click View in the ribbon.
    • Click Options.
    • Under General, next to “Open File Explorer to:” choose “This PC.”
    • Click OK
