sort by "kind" rather than name. As a plus, the docs will be together in alphabetical order as will the folders.If I have a folder that contains, say, 5 folders and 20 files, is is possible to setup finder so that the folders are listed first (in alphabetical order) and then the files are listed after the folders (in alphabetical order)?
This is how I'm used to seeing things (I'm a recent Mac convert), but if i choose alphabetical order, the folders and files are mixed amongst each other.
Thanks for the suggestion.sort by "kind" rather than name. As a plus, the docs will be together in alphabetical order as will the folders.
This is not the case for me.I know for sure that if you first sort by kind in list view, you can switch to column view and it will retain the order
Thanks for the suggestion, I might do it this way if no one knows how to use the column view and arrange by kind then name...A work around for folders on top ordering is to just name your folders with a blank space at the beginning.
No worries.sorry, you're right. Just checked myself, I was thinking icon view (I never use column view by the way, this is probably why)
To me it's not just a Windows thing. It just make sense to have the folders at the top because you're navigating a folder structure. If you want to navigate the quickest you want to get the quickest access to the next folder which would be at the top since it will consistently be at the same place.by defualt folders will go last. not sure why, and coming from windows, even after a couple years this gets to me a little bit.
