I have tried all menu items on View in My Computer to arrange the list (Drive C etc.)

It used to be in the order I wanted, then it changed.

It is now: (Details view -  and in "arrange icons by"  I marked  Comments and Show in Groups)

 

Local Disk (C:)

DVD-RAM Drive (D:)

(a space)

Unspecified_________________________________

(another space)

(yellow folder icon) Shared Documents

(yellow folder icon) (My name) Documents

 

It used to be that the Shared Documents and my own documents were at top with the Local Disk and Drive D listed last.  I tired Invert Selection on Edit--nothing happened.  I CAN get the drives on the bottom, but D is always before C in the list.

 

A solution to getting it like it used to be will be VERY appreciated.

 

As stated, I have tried all I can find.

Hello, and welcome to Bleeping Computer

 

Does the following help?

 

Change from "Details" to "Tiles"

Arrange Icons by "type" check "Show in Groups"

Thanks John C_21 -- it worked!  I thought I had tried ALL the combinations.  I am saving that info in my how-to folder that has saved me many times, but had nothing about this in it.  Thanks again.
