Windows 7: Windows 7 files and folder arranging

Windows 7 files and folder arranging

I just loaded Windows 7, now I can NO LONGER arrange my photos within a folder, arrange my folders within "Pictures" etc. Always could do this before, what happened??? Also, I can find NO way of allowing me to put say a photo anywhere I wish, except on my desktop-which still works fine. If I try to take a photo out of sequence it just does not let me move it to another place, UNLESS I am putting it into a folder! HELP?????

this link HERE will help to arrange files in any order you want, not sure about not being able to move the files try right click and copy or cut then paste.

SOLVED MY OWN PROBLEM I THINK. I guess I will just use my secondary hard drive to edit my photos, it must still be operating under Vista because it still works fine when arranging files and folders. It is NOT a SOLID STATE HARD DRIVE LIKE my main drive(128GB), it is a spinning disc 7200 rpm. WHY do I now need a SSDrive? Since I have to go back to my 320 GB secondary drive??? It also works fine when using my 500GB Toshiba backup device, strange....
