This problem first arose with the launch of Windows 7 and it was in one of the Windows 7 forums that a solution was provided. That came about via a piece of software, what looks to me like a batch file that altered the registry. It is called: Disable_Windows_Explorer_Auto_Arrange.reg. In addition, the author provided an antidote.
- Dare I run that edit in Windows 10?
- If not, is there a suitable alternative?
I can supply copies of the two files to anyone that is interested. I am sorry that I am unable to acknowledge the original author as the file properties now merely say that “this file came from another machine ...”, but I suspect it was an expert contributer called Brink.
Thanks in advance,
