Windows 10: I cannot turn off a folder "group by" type once selecting one.

    I cannot turn off a folder "group by" type once selecting one.


    Once I have turned on a "group by" sort that changes the view of the folder into groups, I cannot return the folder to a groupless mode, even if I remake it because when I name it the same thing, it reverts to the sort the former folder had strangly.

    Please Help,

    Welcome to TenForums @missionagape

    When you have selected a 'Group by' option a new item (None) should appear at the end of the 'Group by' list - it's just above Ascending/Descending. Click on it to turn off grouping.
