List View sort folders and files together RRS feed

  • Question

  • How can I create a list view that will sort files and folders together by Name or Title.  When I apply a custom view to sort based on one of these criterias it shows folders and then files.  The customer would like to see both sorted together.  Example a folder F2 should display after a file F1 .

  • Hi,


    For your question, I need to tell you it was designed to be. In our operating system they also display in the same way.


    Here is a workaround, you can have a try if it can meet your demand.


    There is a feature called "Group by" and you can find it when you create or modify a view. Here you can make the files and folders group by Title that items have same title would be included to a same group.


    Now you can make the items sort by Title and they will display as groups. 


    Hope it helps.


    Best Regards,
