Windows 7: Folder Organization Error

Folder Organization Error

Hello everyone,

I have come to address an issue that is pestering me quite a bit, which is my folder organization problem.

As you can see, the folder entitled "Feed Me" is not properly organized, and no matter what I do, be it recreate the folder or whatever, it refuses to organize itself properly.

I am running Windows 7 Home Premium 64Bit.

Thanks so much for your help. :)

EDIT: This problem only appears in my "Music" library.

Hell TehResistance, and welcome to Seven Forums.

It looks like you have your "Sort by" folder view setting set to be sorted by the # details (column) instead of the Name details. You should be able to click on the Name column header to have the small triangle display pointing upwards on it to indicate the folder is sorted by "Name" details" in ascending order.

File and Folder Arrangement - Group by - Sort by - Arrange by

Hope this helps, :)
