Automatic sorting in folders
When I moved a file from one folder to another in my old computer (XP) it ended up at the end of the folder and stayed there until I clicked on F5 or closed and opened the folder again. When I do the same in Windows 7, it almost immediately ends up in alpabetic order. That is good sometimes, but when I have to add a date to the filename and the file "disappears" from my view, it's not good. If I have a folder with a couple of hundred files it's sometimes hard to find the one I am looking for.
Can I turn the automatic sorting off? I'd rather have it as it was before, if I want the files to show in alphabetical order I click F5.
