When I go to attach a file to an email, the "Insert File" dialog box pops up and the files inside are in reverse alphabetical order and the files are there but I have to scroll to the right to see the folders which are usually ahead of files. Does anyone have a suggestion as to how to cure that oddity?
thank you.

Are you using POP e-mail, or web-based E-mail when you are attempting to attach a file? If the former, what application are you using.
Does this happen with all E-mail services, or just one?

I believe your only way around that is when the dialog pops up, you'll have to select the drop-down selection (to the right) of how you want your files displayed. If you select Ascending it'll list them the way you want. You may have to click it 2 times, it depends on the listings of the files (meaning, if they're listed folders 1st or files 1st.)

Inserting a file may not be the same thing as attaching a file.

What email client are you using or are you using web mail?
