I'm using 0-9 and A-Z to name files. For example, ex_1A, ex_23, etc. I pad to 2 digits, so 9 would be ex_09.
In Windows 10 File Explorer, it sorts things completely wrong:
ex_00 ex_0A ... ex_0Z ex_01 ex_1A ... ex_1Z ex_02 ex_2A ... ex_2Z
and so on. Using
dir /b "C:\PATH" lists things properly:
ex_00 ex_01 ... ex_09 ex_0A ... ex_0Z ex_10 ... ex_19 ex_1A ... ex_1Z
and so on. I've tried turning off numerical sort with the group policy editor, but it does nothing. In explorer, I group by type and sort by name. It seems to be ignoring the padding 0, which completely defeats its purpose. Is there a way to fix this?
