    Is there any way to prevent Vista from automatically alphabetize files as you add them to folders? I really do not like that feature, at all.

    Also, in XP you can open a folder, set it's view (like list view with status bar) and you can go to folder options and "apply to all folders" and it will change every folder's view. I cannot for the life of me get this to work in Vista. Can someone please tell me what to do to fix this?

    Someone posted a link to help with the second part, said he used it and it worked (some registry settings and resettings mostly). It might have been in the All other software archives if not the Vista OS one. Three of my 4 Vista systems do the same thing as they continue not aging well at all, but I've stopped trying to fight the decay and just hope Windows 7 is a cureall.

    I'll see if I can search the achives for the link and post it if I find it.
