    How to Re-order Folder Groups Inside a Library in Windows 10

    information   Information
    Libraries gather added folders that are stored in different locations so you can browse them in one place.

    By default, grouped folders inside a library show in the same order in which you included them. You can move up and down the folders to arrange them in any order you like.

    This tutorial will show you how to re-order folder groups inside a library in Windows 10.
