How to get a mix of auto arrange and (non) auto arrange, sorting...no flexibility like XP. RRS feed

  • Question

  • My status...recently bought a laptop and using Windows 7...


    In XP, for some folders liked use the icons view and to have the align to grid and auto arrange on, while I was stilled able to move my files around.

    As well in 7, I gave my computer the options to enable/disable auto arrange and align to grid. I'm also able to move my files around the way I want them to, but, the problem is that whenever I download a new file into folder 'x', it is downloaded and filed my name.

    In XP, the new files would be placed at the end of the page. If I have many files in one folder and have a new one placed alphabetically, sometimes I cannot find that new file.


    A side problem with auto arrange in 7: When sorting things in my, folders and files are all sorted together and not separately...
