    Hi guys,

    I've doing some research but I cant seem to get any answers so I am going to post it here.

    Does anyone know how to stop auto listing of files on the desktop.
    For example, when I drag a file to the desktop, Mac automatically moves the file into a list of ABC order.
    I want to stop that since I lose track in some of my work.

    Does anyone know how?

    Right/secondary click on the Desktop. Change Sort By from Name to None.

    (you can also use the menu Finder > View > Sort By. Or, Finder > View > View Options)
