    Folder in Finder Order A-B
    Good day to all.
    Can someone please help me out with a folder in the finder.
    I want to put some documents in a specific folder but I want to have the folders January to December in that order without affecting any other folder setup in the Finder section.
    Thank You.
    David

    Please backup. Everything has a life cycle, unexpected and warning free. Nothing will last as long as you want it to.

    Just thought I'd add some alternatives if you like some variation:
    Mac 101: Finder filename sorting
    Mac 101: Finder filename sorting

    Not forgetting the characters are compounding, ie a leading "space+space" will preceed a single "space" in a file/folder name when sorted by "Nsame".
