Hi Shawna,

Did you find any solution?
Like you I'm trying to solve the problem for quite a while.

Thanks, Blueskys

Doug Know answered this question back on 9/11/03. I tested it out on both
WinXP SP2 and Win2k3 SP1, and as he stated, as long as the "Show Groups"
item is not checked, the folders stay at the top regardless of which column
is used to sort on - quote:

"Right click in a blank area of the right pane of the Explorer window and
select Arrange Icons and make sure that Show in Groups is not checked."
