When I go to insert a file to an email by clicking on the "Insert File" paper clip, and the "Insert File" dialog box opens, all the files are in reverse order. That is, I'm looking at files beginning in z and I have to scroll to the right to get to the files beginning in a and to the folders, which are at the front of all files, except in my dialog box they are at the end. Any solutions??

This is one of those computer 101 moments. You'll like this when you can see what this does.

In any window like this you should see column names "Name, Size, Date Modified" and so on. If you click on any of them the list is sorted by that column. First time you click the column is in ascending order if you click it again it is in descending order. There should be a little triangled arrow beside the name of the column that is sorted.

I often sort my files by date so that I can find fast the file I just modified.
