    When I put a large number of documents or programs in a folder, the icons are often inconveniently spread out throughout the folder. Is there a way to quickly rearrange them so they are all in one spot as opposed to slowly dragging each icon to where I would like it?

    Thanks.

    Right-click in the folder and select "Clean Up" to align them or "Arrange By" to sort them.

    For whatever reason, that does not seem to be an option when I right click.

    You don't see this menu when you right-click in the white area of the folder that contains the icons?

    No, I do not. I found a different way, though. Thanks for your help!
