Windows 7: display files before folders in the music library

display files before folders in the music library

I've noticed that the music library always shows folders (not files) first when ordering by date (created/modified). In Vista, files can be shown first, which I prefer since I can see my most recent music files. So my question is... is it possible to change this, to display files and then folders (as in Vista)?
Thanks in advance.

Update: it happens in all the libraries, not only in the music one. However in the computer explorer it doesn't, I mean, files appear in the first place.

I haven't experimented with Libraries much so here's the link to the Libraries tutorials until someone can answer your question.
