    Help with arranging documents in a folder


    Hello,

    I have a few folders on my computer that I want to custom sort the word documents in them. I noticed there is a long list of different ways to sort documents in a folder, but I am not sure what most of them mean, or how to edit that option so they list the way I want them too. I saw the number sign(#) for an option and was wondering if anyone knows how to edit this so I can do a custom sort. See screen shot for more clarity.

    Of course I know I could put a number in front of the file name to sort them that way, but I was hoping for an easier sorting process. Any clarity would be greatly appreciated! Thanks!

    :)

  3. Manually arrange photo file icons within folder (for a custom slide show arrangement...)

    Adding to Bruce:

    Windows 10 - Disable Full Row Select and Auto Arrange

    Note that this edit disables "Tiles" view in folders, plus some other UI effects. The side-effects are documented in the page.
