Re: File Grouping



Give the following a try;



The, Group By, in the View menu needs to be changed.  Try the following:


1. Open your Downloads folder, or, your documents folder, and press, Control + spacebar, to make sure nothing is selected.

2. Press the applications key or Shift + F10 to open the context menu.

3. In the View submenu press enter on, List, or whatever you want from this submenu.

if you've already have list checked then, leave this as it is.


4. Open the context menu again, open the, Sort By submenu, and press enter on, Name, or whatever your choice might be.

again, if you have name checked leave it as it is.


5. Open the context menu again, down arrow to the, Group By submenu, and press enter on, None.

here's where most likely the issue is, you can't find none in the list, so, while in the list, press enter on name, go back into group-by menu, arrow down you should find none press enter your done.

That's it, you should be good to go.

I’m still having the same problem. I can’t locate an option to set all folders to the same view like we used in earlier versions. In File Explorer I hear progress percentages and then my sort by choice is shown- but windows seems to be reconfiguring it when I open Explorer. But if I open my user name, downloads- the display reverts to the order by date thing after a while- which is making us all nuts 😉

Hi Mike,


Thanks for this, it helped, byt only temporarily.  When I go to aply to all folders, it reverts back to the grouped items and changes the sort order to date accessed.


Any idea what’s going on?

Hi Victor,


This is because you need to change the, Group By, setting to, None, in the view menu.  While in a folder, let's use the Downloads folder as an example.  Press, Control + spacebar, so Jaws reports, not selected.  Open the context menu with the Applications key or Shift + F10.  Press enter on the, View submenu, choose what you want, list , details or... and press enter.  Open the context menu and open the, Sort By submenu, and press enter on your choice.  Now open the context menu and open the, Group By submenu, find, None, and press enter.

Take care.  Mike.  Sent from my iBarstool.  Go dodgers!
If at first you DO succeed, try not to look astonished!

Hi Folks,


I just updated to Windows 10 version 1903, and my files seem to be grouped by date, or at least, the last time I accessed them.


The go by today, last week, last month and so on.


Can I shut this off, and if so, how?


I’ve looked through the view menu and it seems like everything is set like before the update, but I still can’t get it to look right.


Does anyone have any ideas?
