Win7 Explorer changed listing of searches
For the last couple of weeks, Windows Explorer has been behaving a bit strange. When I click on Favorites, My Documents, the files/folders are shown the normal way, the way that I'm used to for the longest time: starting with latest Date Modified files and at the very bottom, the folders are also listed in the latest date modified.
But, beginning two weeks ago the rest of the items in the Favorites listing, such as Downloads, Videos, etc, are not listed in that order. They are llisted with folders first, then zip files and then regular files.
I won't even talk about Libraries -- I gave up on that one, where I can't search for anything in any of them.
This is not a life or death situation, but it just makes me wonder what I did in the last couple of weeks that could have changed WE's behavior.
I even tried System Restore, but Windows 7 won't let me do that. It says that it could not restore because perhaps an antivirus program is running. I stopped it and tried again and it says the same thing. I will resolve this one particular issue one of these days.
