    Sleep Problems - Strange wake up behaviors


    Hey, thanks for the suggestion! I went into my BIOS and neither "MSI Fast Boot" or "Fast Boot" were enabled. I took a few pictures of the BIOS config and of the power-related options, and attached them below.

  3. sort folders and files in explorer

    Hi Greg,

    You can filter the folders and files in File Explorer using the Sort by option. To best address your concern, we need you to answer the following questions:

    • What do you mean when you mentioned “files sorted by latest first”?
    • You mentioned that you were able to perform it before, which Windows version were you using that time?
    • Can you provide us a detailed description of what you would like to perform?

    In the meantime, you can try the following steps:

    • Go to File Explorer.
    • Click the Drive where the files and folders are saved.
    • Under Current view, click Sort by.
    • Select Name if you would like to sort it alphabetically. Choose
      Date modified or Date created if you wanted to sort it by date. Refer to the image below.

    Please take note that you can’t apply two filters at a time.

    Looking forward for your response.

    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.
