    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.
