    Folder does not appear to look right, how to change it?


    This started right after the last update-

    I have a folder with pics in it, then the folder has created a line in the folder separating my pics, I cant delete this weird line, if I try to upload a pic that is below this line it will not upload cause pic is not there even thou I can see it. This line is appearing in the folders on the c drive, everywhere on the pc, I hope there is a way to fix this, its driving me nuts.
    I have a pic of it-

    You are sorting by date for types or group. Right click in that window and change the settings.

    Any possibility that the picture files got corrupted or deleted?

    Did you right click in the window to see what the settings are? It is showing sort by date, because that is from the way that folder was set.

    @Crochet02 This is controlled by a setting on File Explorer's 'View' tab. It's called 'Group by' and you seem to have it currently set to 'Date'. To get a normal view, set 'group by' to: (None).

    How would that stop the pictures from opening?

    It may not, then again resetting the view may make the files reappear.

    At least it provides the answer to this line in the OP

    @Crochet02, have you tried changing the 'Group by' setting in File Explorer's View as I described?
