    File arrangement on-screen with Explorer


    I originally had this problem on a Win machine and it was solved by someone called Brix???
    I need to be able to move a thumbnail of a file (usually of a photo) ini the usual panel in Explorer. But if I drag and drop, the file merely goes back to its original place. Brix supplied me with a batch file that I understand editied the Registry so that the thumbnail stayed in the place at which it was dropped and this persisted after closing and re-opening Explorer. I dearly need a version of this process for my wife's new Win 10 machine. Please can you help?

    I think the Alien that you need is one of our Admins @Brink - He's located in the states so should be around later

    in the meantime there may be something that may help in one of his many tutorials Windows 10 Tutorials

    I personally use Adobe Lightroom for image management but Adobe Bridge is similar and free to use and should be a lot more flexible than Explorer

    Hello Tone Dialing, :)

    It sounds like you may want to disable auto arrange in File Explorer to be able to arrange items how you like.
