    Move icon freely inside a folder


    How can I move my icon inside a folder. I dont mean on desktop, but inside a folder on C: disk. Now it is impossible to move icon around, they all seem to be lined up alphabetical. For example sometimes I want to move i file.txt to bottom right in folder window, but now it stays around in top line.

    I was working fine in windows 7, but nor in win 10

    :)
