View Full Version : alphabetical ordering of items in windows pop-up menus

Selecting files or folders from within applicaitons by using the pop-up windows menus can be tedious because the contents of those menus aren't sorted alphabetically by default. Is there a way to make the default ordering alphabetical?

Try right clicking in the window and then go 'arrange icons..' there you get a choice of how you want them to appear. :)

Thanks for your help, but I'm asking whether there is a way to set the DEFAULT ordering as alphabetical... I don't want to have to right click & select EVERY TIME I want to open or save a file!

I do not think you will get a definitive answer, as each application differs.

You do not hint which applications you refer to, but as a rule older versions do not appear to have sticky options but newer ones do.

For instance Word XP stays in the state you leave it. Photoimpact v5 doesn't stay but returns to default.
