    Sorry for the newbie question, but does anyone know of a way to disable natural sorting in Finder?

    i.e., I want my files to be sorted like:

    1
    10
    2
    25
    3

    instead of:

    1
    2
    3
    10
    25

    I realize that natural sort is more... natural for humans, but when I have thousands of files that are named like 1267b63a37_461 with random number of letters and digits it's impossible to find anything when they're sorted naturally.

    Thanks.

    Open a Finder window and do Cmd+J. Change the "Arrange By" drop down.
