    I see. So I am assuming that the "English" versions of other countries'... English languages is probably the method to be able to get it sorted in the correct way that the thread starter wants.
    That's just my assumption, from all that I've read above, and what I tried on my end.
    english alphabet is abc... xyz.. mine is the same to Z and then comes .. so this three should be sorted as last, so not even near A or AA Danish and Norwegian is also after z
    So when making folders/files it should be as my printscreen showed with at the bottom after Z.. so next to AA is wrong order

    Oh I see. That makes sense. So it is correctly alphabetized. It's just that the thread starter wants all "A" next to each other, all "E" next to each other, etc.

    You see, us in the US like to be lazy and keep things next to each other. Haha:

    So technically speaking, if the thread starter wants it the way he wants it organized, that means he will have to switch his language to any of the English languages, since the thread starter's Windows 10 language is most likely not in English.

    other languages is as they is. so it take time to learn.. and you over in the US.. if you dont plan on taking a trip to sweden.. why spend time learning a language you wont have use for... Unless you run in to Dolph Lundgren over in Hollywood.. then you can use a few phrases to impress him. *LOL*

    A and might look the same but has a totally different sound. Copy A and listen to that latter in the google translator set to swedish then copy in and listen to that.. it will be like A and some version of "Oh"
    So i think you do the right thing and being lazy...... i would if i had been born in US and saw a swedish post *HAHA*

    You figured me out! I actually was thinking of visiting Sweden... to learn Swedish.. (I'll learn to make a Sweet Dish while there), learn the language, come back to California, I live near the capital of California... Los Angeles, near Hollywood, is not the capital of California.. yet =
    I'm near Sacramento, but I was thinking of visiting Dolph Lundgren, just so I can talk with him, and tell him about my Swedish Sweet Dish. It will impress him. He's gonna love it, I'm gonna love it. "I'm lovin' it!" hahaha

    But wait though. I went to Google Translate and put the Swedish mode:
    A sounds like: Aww
    sounds like: Oooh

    So "" should be right next to: "O"

    =O

    Hello!

    Thanks for so many replies!

    To answer the question from dalchina:

    This sorting behaviour is in Windows Explorer.

    AA is treated as , it goes after Z, like this (see also attached screenshot):

    A
    B
    C

    Z
    AA


    I have Norwegian keyboard installed. My default language is English, but I have registered Norway as region because I live in Norway. Can I change this sorting behaviour even though my region is Norway?

    Best regards

    This is easier to explain visually. On the last screen, do a right-menu "Refresh" and your changes will take effect.

    It sounds as you have a nice plan going.

    Yeah the sound of is wired on its own.. It becomes better in words though.
    The word "so" and "s" is the same and also sounds "kind of" the same.. but "s" sounds more as "saw" if you try the sounding in google translator.
    Sofa.. Soffa.. The same meaning but an extra F.. the sounding of the word is a bit different though.
    That was a tiny swedish lesson. *LOL*
