The order of files? How to sort folders?

Post by *dragonworks »

This question pertains to when I am in a window viewing a bunch of directories (folders) inside a directory ( folder).
In the taskbar at the top of the window are name, size, date, extension etc. When I click these to change the arrow direction to reorder the files nothing happens? Is it because I am looking at only directories and not files with extensions?
Thank You
Jerry

If you also want to be able to sort dirs by extension then add this:
SortDirExt=1
to the [Configuration] section of your wincmd.ini file

I sort my folders by "writedate". I want to synch the newest files in each folder. However, newest files in subfolders are not recognized. Any ideas?
