    Hello MPSAN,

    I'm afraid that it will indeed auto resort them if you rename a file.
    Darn...however, once that is done and she moves it back will it stay? Or, are you saying that if she does rename a file, it will resort the whole directory again?

    It'll only affect the files in that opened folder when you rename a file, but yeah she can arrange them back to how she wants again afterwards.

    After using one the .bat files, it certainly lets me to arrange folders/files however I want. But after I close/open window or refresh(F5) all files go back to their original positions/order. I'm using Windows 10 64bit with "creators update".

    Hello Kaliosas, and welcome to Ten Forums.

    I'm seeing the same thing in Windows 10 Creators Update version 1703. It appears that this no longer works properly starting with this version now.

    I've been struggling with this as well, but gladly it is working again in Version 1703 OS Build 16176
    which I tested in a virtual machine.
    So hopefully this feature will be back to stay.
    Thanks to Shawn for his past work on this.

    Hello @mazza, :)

    Thank you for testing. Do the position of the icons you arrange in the position you wanted stick when you close and reopen the folder window?

    They haven't been sticking in the latest builds.

    Nope, but it fixed the text aligned left issue! :)

    Hi, I was wondering if this is something that can be done at all or if its a lost cause?
    I REALLY want this function and have not found anywhere on the web on how to get it working or why Microsoft broke it.

    Best regards

    Hello Mowus, and welcome to Ten Forums.

    So far, it's still not working without any known fixes for it yet.
