    File explorer has changed the order it shows stuff


    Win 7 did it, and Win 10 did. I have my downloads go to E:\Downloads, like to keep them separate. Win 10 use to show first the files by date, and then any folders under them. Now it is showing all folders first and then the downloaded files. I have tried everything in the view/group by, and sort by to try and get it back to where it was but no luck. Any suggestions?

    Thanks

    Hello Maddad,

    If you have your Downloads folder in "Details" view, click on the "Name" column title bar to have it sorted descending by name.

    That should have the files on top, and folders on bottom like below.

    Found that while in view clicking on sort by, date modified, works aok.
