sort order (numeric alphanumeric length?)

#1
Are you also incredibly annoyed how XP's Windows Explorer displays its file list order
differently than every other application? For example (by name):
Try this in Windows Explorer:
97thaps.jpg
306thcds.jpg
But, what I would like to see is:
306thcds.jpg
97thaps.jpg
Well,
You can finally fix this feature for Windows XP SP1 or greater by creating the following registry key:
(For all users)
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\policies\Explorer]
NoStrCmpLogical = DWORD: 1
(Per user)
[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\Explorer]
NoStrCmpLogical = DWORD: 1
Now by-name sort order in XP's Windows Explorer will match the order used by applications, and just like it was on Windows 2000 and earlier.
