I am using WIN 7 Ultimate and have a folder (FOLDER-A) containing about 160 .HTM documents and their corresponding FILES folders from documents I have downloaded from the internet. I am trying to sort these by name within the containing folder (FOLDER-A) so that each .HTM document appears next to its corresponding FILES folder but:--as their names are all preceded by either an .HTM icon or a FILES/folder icon, the sort process includes these icons as part of the name with the result that all the FILES folders sort together in a block (in alphabetical order) followed by all the HTM documents sorted together in a block (also ordered alphabetically). I have looked in the "Folder Options" menu for ways to eliminate the icon from each file/folder name but can find nothing. I have checked the "Properties" of the .HTMs and FILES but can see nothing that touches on this subject. Renaming the files/folders to exclude the icons does not seem possible - at least, I couldn't manage it! I have checked in many parts of the Local Group Policy Editor but can see nothing that seems relevant! Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
