    Curious To Figure When Microsoft Will Address This "Issue"


    Okay, so this is not a problem that really bothers me too much, but according to how advanced Microsoft is of a company, I'm still wondering why they haven't addressed this certain "visual issue".


    ***Please be aware that I am not looking for a solution to this; I am just posting this so, hopefully, Microsoft gets more awareness of it... yet honestly.. who cares, right?***



    Whenever you have many files in a folder with the same name, each duplicate name you can rename to add a "(2)" & "(3)" at the end of the file name, and so on... like: File.txt, File (2).txt, File (3).txt, etc...

    Yet when the file names are sorted by the default "alphabetical" order in a folder, the "firstly named file" gets listed at the end. (Refer to the attached picture. You can see the "first" file gets listed last, yet all the other ones are listed chronologically, starting from the top.)

    ...So by now, (the year 2019,) why hasn't Microsoft came up with some sort of solution to list the first supposed file to be listed first in File Explorer?
    Is there a reason why there is no certain "rule" that has been implemented in File Explorer that lists the files the way that it "should" be listed?
    (Also, the same applies for when you create a new folder, and create a new file inside the folder, named File.txt for example, and you copy-paste that file over and over. As a matter of fact, that method makes the listing just a tad bit slightly worse. *Extra Credit!*: Try this method out, and tell us how the listing looks in the folder.)


    Please keep note: I'm not trying to "put down" Microsoft's logic or credibility or whatever. I'm just wondering why this weird "idea" doesn't have a realistic "solution" to it yet.

  2. Enable or Disable Microsoft Edge Address Bar Drop-down Suggestions in Local Group Policy Editor

    How to Enable or Disable Microsoft Edge Address Bar Drop-down Suggestions in Windows 10


    Microsoft Edge is a new web browser that is available across the Windows 10 device family. It is designed for Windows 10 to be faster, safer, and compatible with the modern Web.

    The Address bar drop-down functionality in Microsoft Edge allows showing suggested search results when typing in the Microsoft Edge address bar (suggestions list).

    If you like, you can configure the Allow Address bar drop-down list suggestions group policy setting that lets you decide whether the Address bar drop-down functionality is available in Microsoft Edge. Microsoft recommends disabling this setting if you want to minimize network connections from Microsoft Edge to Microsoft services.

    If you enable or don't configure this setting, users can see the Address bar drop-down functionality in Microsoft Edge.

    If you disable this setting, users won't see the Address bar drop-down functionality in Microsoft Edge. This setting also disables the user-defined setting, Show search and site suggestions as I type in Microsoft Edge settings.

    This tutorial will show you how to enable or disable the Address bar drop-down list suggestions functionality in Microsoft Edge for all users in Windows 10.

    *Warning You must be signed in as an administrator to enable or disable the Address bar drop-down functionality in Microsoft Edge.
