Windows 7: Win Explorer Reverse Alpha Order of Document Folders

Win Explorer Reverse Alpha Order of Document Folders

When I go into Explorer to look at or open a Document Folder, my folders appear in reverse alpha order (Z-A). Is there a way to change this so that my folders appear in alpha order (A-Z). This is extremely annoying and I really would appreciate help with this.

Right click and select sort by -> name; should reverse the order. You may also have to change to ascending (within the same area) instead of descending.
