Windows Explorer deselects all your selected files when you resort the files by some other property. RRS feed

  • Question

  • This is extremely annoying and unlike any previous version of Windows. I am running Windows 7 Ultimate 64bit.

    When I select a group of files in Windows Explorer and click on the head of a column to resort the files (by date, size, or any other property) it deselects all the files I had previously selected. I use this functionality a lot and all previous versions of Windows in memory would allow you to do this and the files remained selected. I even tried it within a Virtual PC Windows XP window running with Windows 7 and it works properly as I described.

    Please fix this obvious bug.
