Is there any chance you can clarify that a bit with more information?

In XP, you can have your folders sorted into catagories or alphabeticly in groups. In 7..the folders are just listed alphabeticly. I want my folders to sort into all links together, all word docs together, and all pics together.
I can't find anything.

Isn't that what View / Group by / Type gives you?

Hello Justauntb,

I would think that using View -> Group by -> Type would give you that.

File and Folder Arrangement - Group by - Sort by - Arrange by

Hope this helps,
