Thanks for replying.

As former versions of W10 didn't have this issue, it seems intentional.
Might there be a reason why Microsoft wants to arrange my files?

Auto-arrange issue

(meanwhile I'm grudgingly adjusting to the for the time being inevitable)


If fans of your auto-arrange fix want to start a petition with Microsoft, i'm in.
