    Hi Guys and Girls,

    In the finder window, organising files/folders by kind now separates the files into different categories that you have to scroll through or click show all.

    Is there anyway to turn this off? So that all the files are ordered based on their data types but are not separated into the categories.

    Have you tried clicking the 'Arrange' button in a Finder window and chewing 'None?' That is what mine is set to and my files appear the way they did in Snow Leopard. I think that is what your goal was right?

    This is driving me absolutely nuts too. I sort this way so many times every day and I hate that lion will dump a .mkv in to it's "documents" category. Anyone figure out a solution to this yet?

    I found a semi solution that is buggy. You can sort by filetype like in snow leopard by holding down alt + right click --> sort by --> kind

    The problem comes in that there is a bug with this that will grey out the sort by options half the time. ಠ_ಠ
