Hi - I am still in switch mode and there is something that is bugging me. On the Mac folders and documents are presented mixed alphabetically. Is there anyway to group the folders and group the docs so that one comes before the other? I am finding this rather annoying. Thanks!

In List view highlight Kind instead of Name at the top of the list

In icon view - click on the arrow of that little button that looks like a gear - select Arrange by ... Kind

I cannot be held responsible for the things that come out of my mouth.
