View Full Version : Sorting files in Leopard

Apr 22, 2012, 06:03 PM
I'm sorry if this topic has been up before (I couldn't really find anything - I searched for "sorting", "folders first", "file managing" and so on), but I was wondering if there is a way to sort the files in Finder by kind AND alphabetical - without the need of buying third party applications like for example Path Finder. Google told me how I should do to make the Kind-option make the folders appear on top, but then it's not alphabetical at the same time.

I feel that I'm a bit unclear (it's late here) so, to sum things up:

No third party application
Folders on top whilst...
...every Kind in it's own alphabetical order
Work in Leopard
Easily reverted

Well, okay, let's say third party applications were allowed in this case - since there's not a whole lot of fast answers. But then it must be free and should be able to be run automatically in the background at startup. Does this open up any windows?
