    Hi all,
    I've been on a mac for about a year now. I love it to death. But there is one thing I consistently wish I had from Windows - in their file explorer all the folders were always grouped together in whatever organizing view was selected (so if it was by name all the files in a folder would be alphabetical and all the folders within that folder would be at the top or bottom in their own alphabetical order).

    Is there any way to do that on a mac? it drives me crazy that the folders are spread out through the whole list.

    Finder -> View -> Show View Options -> Arrange by Kind

    While arrange by kind would give you the folders grouped together, I'd like to be able to still have my files listed by name and the folders at the top listed by name too. I'm surprised some third party developer hasn't written something to solve this.
