    I am sorry if this already discussed.
    I am trying to rename 20+ folders in Windows Explorer and they jump all over place. I need to keep them in place after renaming. Is anybody knew how to disable auto sorting in folders, not on the Desktop.
    Thank you for wonderful forum!
    Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit, Dell XPS Studio.

    There are so many threads on this subject, that I think it would be best if you did a search. Basic answer is that there is no answer. The best suggestion I have seen is to put a number in front of each of your files/folders, in the order in which you require them

    Thank you. I did find several Explorer replacements. Can I post their names and/or links. I would like to know what is your expert opinion about them? If it safe to use them?
