Use 'sort by' instead of using 'group by'

Hello e46m3gtr

To begin, ungroup your files and folders, select Group by > (None).

Then choose Sort by > Type.

The Sort by option is located just above the Group by.

For Information on using 'Sort by' and 'Group by' see tutorial instructions File and Folder Arrangement - Group by - Sort by - Arrange by
