Pat,

I never got any response on general post of AWF. Would you help me out. Its difficult for me to find anything on Win 11 explore. How do I get everything to line up on the right side of explorer. In all other versions I could put an a or one in front of folder name and keep it at the top. Now I have to sub sort by 0-9, A-H so on, Some file that I haven’t looked at in 2 years is difficult and time consuming to find.

Not Pat, but you’ve turned on sort by group.
Click Sort in toolbar, point to Group BY and select None.
Then you can click to sort by Name or other fields or ASC/DEC. I think it will resolve your problem.

How about sorting by date, that way your most used files are near the top of the list.

I tend to sort by date descending, and sometimes by name ascending?
I have not spotted any difference in Win11 to Win10 in that regard?

While trying sorting by dates it only sorted for current month, and my thoughts were event if I find a way to include all folders It will be hard to find something that I am not sure if its from 2 years or 3 years ago. However looking for such a sorting feature (NONE) showed up. That seems to have cured my problem. I will play with it an little more to be sure, Thanks to all.

In regards to post #2, I was able to get it to work with sort > group by > name. Then I repeated the sequence and the word "none" appeared.

Dick, Does Win11 have a search field like win10? Top right for me
Failing that, download Everything That will index what you want and makes it easy to find anything.

@Dick7Access I see someone has helped you. Good thing. I'm still with Win 10 and I don't even have that option on my file dialog.
