    Is there anyway to sort folders and shortcuts by name?


    Usually when I do this it will sort folders and shortcuts separately. Is there anyway to list them all alphabetically?

    1. There is a partial solution within Windows explorer itself:


    • right-click into the folder, group by Name
    • if you like, you can then select a sort by Name


    This will give you intermixed folders and files, but will insert some separators that group by letters.

    2. There is a trick - type * in the search field

    This is not exactly equivalent to the normal explorer view.

    3. Use a 3rd party file manager such as xplorer²

    Cool the group by name thing seems like it will work okay. Thanks.
