Windows 7: intuitive file numbering

intuitive file numbering

hi everyone,

First of all, thanks for these forums and all the useful information. It's helped me set up Windows 7 and tweak it to my own needs.

So I have a question.... and before I ask it, I can tell you I've already hunted high and low for any information on this and can't find it.

Windows XP uses what MS calls 'Intuitive Filename Sorting'. So files are ordered in Windows Explorer like this

abc1
abc4
abc05
abc005

TweakUI has a setting to disable this and order files like so

abc005
abc05
abc1
abc4

I want to do the same in W7, but for the life of me, I can't find a setting for it.

Is there a TweakUI for 7? Or does anyone know the registry entry that controls the file ordering in W7?

TIA

mac

Hi Brink,

That worked perfectly. Thanks a lot!

It didn't occur to me to check the Vista tutes. Doh!

Is there a program for numbering multiple files. This is what I mean: I have a folder with many music files and I want to put numbers to all files - File.mp3 to become 01-File.mp3 and etc. One by one file is easy , but renaming 100 or more files is lot of time. Thank You!
