Organize my files and directories Windows Explorer


I search a solution for organize the files list and the directory list how I want. The best would be the possibility to show directly the directory content for some directories. Do you now this ?

I'm not exactly sure what you want. There's Tutorials how to set the various folder content type settings for Explorer. If it's not something Explorer can do natively then you may want to use a 3rd party file manager, such as FreeCommander. There are many others.

Filling this out, at least partially, will save a lot of time. Another advantage is when posting a new problem, the person answering can just click the My System Specs link in the bottom of your post. No need to search for the information.

If you have multiple systems just indicate that in the System Specs so that we know why many of the fields are blank.

Thanks for your response MilesAhead.
I would like the capabilitiy to drag files into any order I want. And why not use separators in my folder or files list, like in my bookmarks in Firefox.
Does nobody know a tweak or software for make this ?

I'm not sure of all the features. You may want to try a program like QTTabBar that modifies Explorer. Otherwise you may need a 3rd party file manager.
