Windows 7: Display Documents in Folder Alphabetically

Display Documents in Folder Alphabetically

How do I get the folders and files in my documents and subsequent folders into alphabetically? Starting with files/folders starting with "0" and "Z".

In the screenshot you can see the files and folders are out of order. I have tried the right click thing that you could do in Windows XP but the option includes every single file under the folders and everything.

Any way to sort folder contents alphabetically?
This isn't such a big deal but I was just curious, does Windows 7 have any way to sort folder contents in true alphabetical order, like older versions of Windows used to? So that it sorts files like this: 1.txt 2000.txt 30.txt 4.txt
