Windows 7: Cannot Display Files Before Sub-Folders in "My Pictures"

Cannot Display Files Before Sub-Folders in "My Pictures"

When scanning documents (and sometimes converting to PDFs) the programs puts the 'output file' in "My Pictures"(MP) but when I display MP, sub-folders contained in MP are 'listed' before files. Thus I have to scroll down to the end of the sub-folder list to get to the new file(or PDF). Suspect it's an easy setting that I can't find....for other folders (that contain sub-folders AND files) I can display the files before the list of sub-folders.
Does "My Pictures" by different rules?

Thank you ThrashZone ... unfortunately that tutorial didn't have what I'm looking for. The info it has is:
"This will show you how to change and organize the file and folder arrangements in a opened folder using Arrange by, Sort by, or Group by folder views in Windows 7."

I'm not looking to change/organize in an open folder ... but rather how to organize an document folder (My Pictures) AS it's opened.

The tutorial (How to Change a Folder Template in Windows 7) looked promising, but using the Customize PROPERTY didn't do what I wanted.

Sorry - forgot to add this:

The "Arrange" drop-down would seem to be what's needed but it only allows folders with My Pictures to be arranged.

What if you use Arrange by, Date Modified
Sort by, Descending ?
I usually do it that way.

"Item not found" bug when moving or renaming files/folders
Hello, I just made an account here because this bug is seriously bugging me. It shows up whenever I move or create any new files/folders. I have googled the registry fix and that doesn't seem to be working. Is there any other known fix? P.S. There is nothing wrong with Waterfox.

How to display files inside "Program Files" folder?
I have a program that uses it's own library. The path to this library can't be changed, and it's inside the "Program Files" folder. And the software itself has to be installed inside "Program Files" too, otherwise it won't work correctly (it's a new release and still a bit buggy). Now, when I...
