    Group By in File Explorer


    Hello,
    Each time I open "Downloads" folder in file explorer, its "Grouped By". Have to select "None" to view it normally.
    Next time its again "Grouped By". How do I get rid of this and set it to be always as "None".
    Answers will be appreciated.
    Thanks


    Window 10 pro x 64, 19041.264

    :)

  2. File explorer (Grouping files)

    I already do something very similar, i was just hoping to be able to have the files in groups rather then as a long list. Hopefully someone knows how to edit these inbuilt group options.

    It is odd if windows added a group option, to group files, but wont let me create any groups to categorize the files in. Group By in File Explorer :(

    Group By in File Explorer

    file explorer --group

    In File Explorer go to View tab > Current view group.

    If the files in the folder support grouping then the "Group By" command will be enabled, click on the drop down and select the group criteria you want to use.
