Folders first

Post by w64bit » Fri Mar 15, 2019 10:05 am

After a search, when you sort by name (clicking on the Name column), the folders are grouped first in list.
If I sort them by date (clicking on the Modified Date column), the files and folders are arranged all by the date, not grouped.
Is there any setting to use in order to have the folders grouped first when are sorted by the date?

Name is sorted ascending first, while dates are sorted descending first.

When the sort is ascending, folders are listed first.
When the sort is descending, folders are listed last.

To sort dates ascending first:
  • In Everything, from the Tools menu, click Options.
  • Click the Results tab on the left.
  • Uncheck Sort date descending first.
  • Click OK.
I will consider an option to show folders first when the sort is descending.

Please also consider searching for:
to limit your results to folders or files only.

I'm also working on several possible solutions to mix folder and files results together.
