Alphabetically order

Hi,
how can i order win 7 windows explorer view to order files and folders alphabetically like this:

folder a
file ab
folder abc
file abc

All I've managed to do is order it by name but ir orders first (or last) all the files and then shows all the folders, like this:
folder a
folder abc
file ab
file abc

In other words I wan't it to display the same sorting as the finder in mac osx

Thanks

You can't, without a 3rd party program/add-on.

Hmmm, I think maybe you CAN. Take a look at this tutorial and this 3rd party app:

File and Folder Arrangement - Change in Windows Explorer Window – can even put single files on top of folders in menu
xplorer² lite: free windows explorer replacement (file manager) – Can put file on top of folders
