    Kind of a strange question.

    Is there a way to arrange files inside a folder so that the article "the" is ignored? Let me explain myself.

    On iTunes I've got the artists arranged so that, say, The Clash are in-between Coldplay and Cold War Kids, as "the" is not taken into consideration, so they are arranged by the letter "C". However, in the My Music folder, all artists that have "the" in their name are listed together at the bottom, as "the" is not considered as an article.

    Is there a way to change it?

    No, there's no way, to OSX, the word "the" is just a collections of letters and treats it as such.

    Ah, shame. I distinctly remember when I bought my Pro in 2010 that it was the other way around. Did they change it afterwards?
