Windows 7: Moving folders around in Documents or My Scans

Moving folders around in Documents or My Scans

Hi there,
I work for a Construction Company and I've decided to clean up the Documents and My Scans by organizing everything by month/year. I made seperate folders for Jan 2012-Dec 2012 and Jan 2013-Dec 2013. So I have 24 folders. Anyway, they're sorted by name and I want them to go in decending order from Jan 2012 to Dec 2013 so that they're all together and not mixed in with other folders alphabetically. Is there anyway I can move them myself or a way to sort them the way I want?

One way to have the folders sort as you expect would be to use a number at the beginning of the file name. The Jan and Feb folders might be:

01-Jan
02-Feb

Its important to use the 01 instead of 1 because when you get to 11 and 12 they will show up after the 1 with out the 0 in front of it.

If you're also creating them in the correct order you can arrange them by "modified".

Thank you Parman! I've done that. Now I feel dumb for not thinking of that myself. Haha. Thank you for all the help!
