  1. How to get the list of all files in a folder sorted in the same order they are sorted in...


    When File Explorer opens a folder, it sorts all folders and files inside in an order according to the settings of that folder. How to get the list of all folders and files or at least of files only sorted in the same order? Not meaning just to look the list in the interface of File Explorer, it is an evident way. Meaning to get the list for further processing. For example, to a text file.

    :)

    file/folder sort order

    Yeah they can't be sorted amongst the other non-folder items, the folders will either be above or below the list of other things, but never mixed betwixt them.

    Sorting with File Explorer.

    I tried the method that was complicated (3rd option) but fell over in second step as I could not find any "apply to folder button"'.

    However, the simple put *.* in search bar, then sort results windows by date does the trick. It is slightly cumbersome as I have to do that each time I am selecting files (to upload to sharepoint) but a lot less hassle than I was having to scroll up and down between sorted file block and sorted folder block.

    Many thanks.

    Sorting files and folders by size

    I tried to sort my SD card by size, and it made absolutely no sense. it reallocated all the files (not in a folder ) at the top, and the folder arrangements were not in size order, the first folder on the list were 6.62MB and the last were 632MB, but there
    are folders with 15GB of content in between. if anyone knows anything about sorting out my view, please help me out here.
