explorer question

Is there a way to get "organize" in explorer to give you the option to reverse selection, like the old days?, thank you, jm

Right click on empty space, -> sort by -> ascending / descending
There are a world of new options in the sort and group menus.
Just experiment with it.

Good luck

Hello jmacie and welcome to the SevenForums. I'm not sure what you mean by reverse selection. Could it be this: Open the Edit menu in any Explorer window and choose Invert Selection.

This option reverses your selection, marking selected files and folders unselected, and selecting files that before applying it were unselected.

Yes, and no

Yes, Kari, that's what I mean exactly, and no squonksc, I checked that, it's not an organizational thing. But thanks for getting me to explore

Not sorted

I appreciate you for sure, I said "organize" because thats the explorer drop-down where you would find the select all, and what used to be Invert selection choices, among other choices

Isn't/Wasn't that called edit?

Yes

Yes rsvr85, the xp edit menu that was changed in vista, and I guess I 'll have to look for a hack or an explorer program to get this feature. After using vista all this time you'd think I would have missed that feature before now, but when you want to take a few files and delete or move the rest it was handy.
