For files, you can right click and "sort by" name - ascending or descending.
For folders, you can click on the "name" tab to get ascending or descending sub folders

Very, very good Josh. Although the tutorial gives and excellent explanation, you should not try if you are not comfortable. I have seen many, many posts of members trying to fix something that they caused. The OS is good the way it is. I wish that more members felt like you.

The simple solution (from the days of the dinosaurs!)

Just add numbers to the folders.

1_Personal
2_Business
3_Mukaka

Lots of folders?
