I don't like that order, there is a way for order the folder:

A

C
D
E
F

? Thank's

P.S. Don't tell me that I must change to "detail" or "List" becouse I can't

The process to arrange icons alphabetically is right click on folder window > sort by > name .

But with the strict parameters dont know whether you like the result or not .

But they ARE sorted. Icons arrange horizontally:
A B C
D E F
If you want vertical order:
A D
B E
C F
you have to select the "List" view. But you can't control the sizes of the icons any more.

The list view is perfect for what I want but this view have the icons very small and I don't like it. I have request in another post if there is a tricks for make big the icon in list view but not one have find a solution.
So, the only solution that I have find is change the view style but it have this problem

I think we must search an options in the regedit for change the icon list from 2 to 1..but is too hard for me

First I asked if it was possible to enlarge the icons on the display list (the display that I prefer)
Win 7 resize icon in List View
but none help me
so I had to change the display setting as in the picture I put here, in this case the icons are large enough but not good order position of icon

There is "Content View" in Windows 7 Explorer which lists vertically and the icon sizes are large.
