    Forgive me, if this question has been asked before, but I couldn't find any answer by searching.

    As a switcher from Windows, I find it very annoying, that whenever I drag and drop files into a folder, they are not organised.
    In order to organize them nicely, I have to use secondary click->sort by (I use the danish language, so I don't know what this is called in the english version) -> Name, size, etc.

    In Windows, there's an "organize automatically"-option. Can the same thing be done in Leopard, so files are automatically organized when you drop them into a folder?

    with a finder window open you can press 'command+J' and set options under the 'arrange by' combo box.

    I just tried it - now new items get organized automatically. Thanks!
