Visual Studio 2005 (Solution Explorer Directory Order)

Posted on 2006-04-30
Last Modified: 2012-08-14
In visual studio 6 and 7, the folders for any given project were Source, header, then resource files. This was a good order and I liked it.
in visual studio 8 however, its in alphabetical order, (header, resource, source files) which in my oppinion is freakin retarted.
I know it's not that big of a deal, i'm just wondering if there is some way to change the order of these directories (without putting numbers before them lol)

    Don't think theres an automatic way of doing it.

    If you notice, the folders are actually filters rather than actual directories. If you select one and look in the properties window you will see its Name and Filter. You can change these to control its name and what files/extensions to include.
