Folder view in Windows Explorer

Audiobookfan
 

I finally got Windows 10 upgraded to version 1903 and I'm running the latest version of JAWS 2019.

Perhaps it was like this before I upgraded to 1903 and I just didn't notice, but the folder view for my downloads folder seems messed up. First, when I enter the folder, JAWS says something about "today expanded" and the files are not listed in alphabetical order. How do I change the view so that I get a detail view with the subfolders listed first in alphabetical order then the files, also in alphabetical order?

While in that folder, hit alt+v then arrow right to details and hit your spacebar, then arrow right to group by, hit your spacebar and select name.
Hit enter, and maybe refresh the window with f5 and you should have everything alphabetical by name in details view.

Hi Jeff,
 
No, this happened in the 1903 update.  Try the following to put it back the way it used to be.
1. Open your Download folder and press, Control + Spacebar, to make sure you deselect anything in the folder.
2. Open the context menu with the Applications key or Shift + F10.
3. In the, sub-menu View, press enter on List or Details, or whichever option you prefer.
4. Again open the context menu and in the, sub-menu Sort by, press enter on , Name.
5. This is the biggie, again open the context menu and press enter on, sub-menu Group By, and press enter on, None.
You should now be back to the old way of the download folder display.

Take care.  Mike.  Sent from my iBarstool.  Go dodgers!
I believe that everything happens for a reason. Usually, the reason is that somebody screwed up.

Unfortunately, that's happened to a lot of us with this latest upgrade.

Hi Mike, 

By using your steps, I can get my downloads folder back to alphabetic order.  I can not, however, find a way to save the settings.  Must I go through these steps every time I open the downloads folder?  It is no big deal since I can get it back to alphabetic, but I was just wondering.

Hi Joan,
 
This has been an issue for some and not for others.  Hopefully they'll stick after a few times.  What you can try is making these same changes in This PC first, then executing the steps again in the Download folder.

I had to repeat the procedure several times before it “took”.
