Windows 7: arranging folders/files manually

12 Nov 2009   #1

Windows 7 Ultimate
arranging folders/files manually

After searching many different forums & posts, I am stunned to realize that I am unable to manually arrange my folders & files within a Windows 7 window. This is hugely disappointing, as I am sure that there are many, many users who have their own systems of organizing. Is this issue being addressed, & will this be fixed in an update/service pack any time soon? Is there a petition floating around that I/we can sign to register this complaint to MS? In the meantime, is anyone familiar with "Nomad" (a free file manager software)? Specifically, how does it interface with Windows 7? Many thanks.

Is there any indication that it might come back? It is really important to me. Is there an easy way of working around it?
