Can you defrag a specific file or folder?

Evening everyone sorry for having to ask a silly question but is it possible to defrag a specific file or folder? the reason i ask is i am having some stuttering in certain games i play so i thought if i could defrag the specific game folder it might help improve performance. I have 4 partitions and all my games are on 1 of them so i know it would not take long to defrag the whole partition as its 100GB but 95GB free lol just curious to know if what i am asking for is possible for future reference

Thanks a mill
