Windows 10 Pro Folder Question

Postby c327 » Wed Jan 03, 2018 11:42 am

Regarding Windows 10 Pro.

Using medium sized icons in a folder. How do you disable auto arrange? Been looking for days and can’t find how to do it.

Seems like a newbie question and maybe it is but can it be done? Researched it on the web and come up with a so called registry fix but don't want to chance that. Some folders auto arrange is good but some aren't.

Doesn't any one here know anything about this problem? I know its not the computer because my other PC has gthe same issue. I see no way to be able to arrange sub folders the way I WANT that are inside a another folder. If there is a way to fix this with out a registry setting I would like to know about it because not being able to do this like in XP is a bummer.

Thanks

Likely a check mark at the command for 'auto-arrange' of the icons. Remove same.
Whether desktop or folder items, likely the same process.

This is not about the desktop. The desktop icons are fine, its the folder icons that I created inside other folders that can't be put where I want them. No matter what I do they keep going back where they were in order via Auto Arrange. I looked all over inside this folder and in the folder property page and see nothing listed for Auto Arrange to tic or not tic.

I have read where its not a option to disable/enable Auto Arrange in Windows 10 but can be disabled via the Registry which I would rather not chance doing.

I have looked in all the normal areas and see nothing that will help?
