I can't find an option to set it to go A-Z alphabetical anywhere...but ever since I upgraded to Windows2000, whenever I go to "My Computer" or get the File dialog in an appilication to open or save a file, all of the files are in Z-A order...backwards!

Is there an option to change this back to -normal-?!

You should be able to click the gray that says Name and it should reverse the order.

Woohoo, that link did the trick! Basically, this guy who did the link had the very same exact problem I did. So, delete this key:

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\ShellState

btw, I could always click the gray Name but it was "list view" was never displayed by default in File dialogs...and was very much a pain to do endlessly.

Sweet. Thanks!
