Windows XP sorts everything alphebetically by name, except that it does it backwards. As it folders are always at the end and then ordered from Z-A. This is not only in Windows Explorer (which is easy to fix via the sort option) but also in dialogs when I click to browse for a file. For example in Firefox, when I click to upload a file, it shows everything ordered from Z-A and I need to move to the end to move to the next folder.
I would like them to be ordered from A-Z with folders at the beginning. Does anyone know how to remedy this permanently?
