Align to grid refers to the desktop icons.

You're obviously in Windows Explorer, so what is it that you're trying to do? And hopefully we'll be able to help you do it.

I think the OP is wondering why the icons aren't displaying from left to right, top to bottom.

Why don't you first go into the Windows Explorer toolbar, and open Views, because it gives you many choices of icon layouts. See if one (for example, Tiles) is what you want.

Mmmmmm, don't think that currently you can have that option. Maybe some kind person will write a script for you. . .

You're asking for a Windows XP function.
There is no such thing in Windows 7 for non-desktop folders.

However having said that, using Medium Icons in Windows 7 will give the same desired effect.
