Win 7 creating alphabetized headers...why?


Well-Known Member
Windows 7 HP has suddenly started to create headers for the alphabetical groups it has started to organize the contents of my flash drives into. Here is an example:


The headers were not there last week, they have not been there since the system was built a year ago, they are not on the drives themselves and they do not appear when the flash drives are plugged into my XP system. I have made no changes that would account for the appearance of these headers during the past week or so.

I would REALLY like to get rid of these things.

Anybody know how...PLEEZE?

Just change your "Group by" setting from "Name" to "None"

Thanks... that corrected the situation.

Now I'd like to discover what caused it in the first place??
