Hello all, new forum member here ;-)

I have a Finder problem. I recently moved some files from my Desktop to my home folder. I'm not sure what happened but when I did this the folders in my home folder are now listed in reverse alphabetical order. What's odd is that when I view in Icon View or Column View the folders are listed correctly (alphabetically top to bottom). I tried removing the Finder plist file but it didn't correct the problem. I also noticed that in List View the View > Arrange By option is grayed out, so I can't change it that way. A small problem I admit, but it really bugs me. Any suggestions?

Thanks,

Doug-O

There should be little arrows in the name bar at the top of the window, clicking on that bar will toggle the view between alphabetical and reverse alphabetical
