    Sort files in selected folders

    Hi k1dr0ck and welcome to the forum.
    Just to add to LMiller7's response, the sort order, icon preferences, and display fields for each folder must be set individually. I'm not aware of any way to change them in groups.

    How to desegregate Folders/Files in File Explorer Sort By Functions?

    Hi,

    Sorting the layout of each folder is really dependent on the user's preference, that is why Windows has a variety of ways of sorting files and folders.

    To sort files and folders alphanumerically together, we can try grouping it by name.

    To do this, follow the steps below:

    • On the folder that you want to sort, click View.
    • Look for Group by and left-click on it.
    • Select Name.
