I'm told that there is no way to arrange the icons in a folder (not on the desktop) in win 7 aside from the generics (by size, date, name, etc.) I'm told that you can't simply move a file to a spot within the folder and have it stay there (which you could do in xp). For example, if you have 10 files in a folder and use one most of the time, it made sense to have that in the upper left or lower right of the listing (I like small icons, myself). In win xp I used to be able to put the file there and it'd stay there. I'm told that win 7 won't let you do this.
Is microsoft really that tone deaf? They wouldn't have removed such a simple, useful function, would they? BTW, I can't rename the folder so that it'll always be at the top or bottom of an alphabetical list because I share many files and my coauthors won't stand for that.
Any ideas on how to have icons stay where I put them?
Thanks for any insights,
