Windows 7: Sort alphabetically

Sort alphabetically

WLM 2011 won't sort the "to" column alphabetically. Sort works OK with my other columns--subject, size and sent. Any ideas why the "to" column won't sort alphabetically? I've tried a repair. Windows reports that was successful, but it did not fix the problem. Thanks.

I have the same problem: won't sort the 'TO' column. Most inconvenient

Just thought I'd report that I downloaded and installed the WLM update today. The updated version now sorts the "to" column alphabetically in the "sent" folder.

thanks for the alert. Although when I tried to get the new file, it was corrupt, from two sources! But weeks later Microsoft sent a download alert. And this works.

Any way to sort folder contents alphabetically?
This isn't such a big deal but I was just curious, does Windows 7 have any way to sort folder contents in true alphabetical order, like older versions of Windows used to? So that it sorts files like this: 1.txt 2000.txt 30.txt 4.txt
