    I would leave that stuff alone, otherwise programs will not be able to find .plist files and will just recreate them anyway after you organized them.

    The above is correct. You cannot organize them since the application expects them to be there.

    But really, there isn't much of a reason to be looking in that folder unless you are troubleshooting.

    You're pretty much limited to the Keep Arranged By options.

    To add a tip to make it easier:

    When you are in a folder, type the name of the preference.

    For example: com.apple.Finder.

    "com.app" will bring you to the right section and you should be able to pick it out easily.

    Sure. Using Labels from the File menu.

    Hmm. Apple should give you the option to Arrange by Label :thinking:
