Hi!

 

Is there a way to have my folders and files respect the alphabetical order? It seems like the folders don't like to hang with the files, and this discrimination makes it hard to consult for my students.

 

Here is an example:

Thank you!

This is the default sort view, by modified date, but you can easily overwrite it by clicking the Name column. The problem is making it stick... which is a known issue/common complaint, and no proper solution still.

@Vasil Michev Unfortunately, the files and folders still don't like to hang out together by doing what you suggest. Here is an example:

Can someone please tell me how to mix the folders and files together, please? Having them separated confuses my students! Thanks!

Think I might have misunderstood the question here, there's no way to "mix" them, folders will stay on top.

Thank you! (BUT WHY?!?!?)
