Unable to disable Auto Arrange in Vista 64 Home Premium. Getting really tired of MS deciding what's best for me. Will someone please help???!!!
Unable to change from the file menu, it is grayed out:
From Explorer>View>Auto Arrange
Auto-Arrange is grayed out along with hide file names and align to grid. What I'm trying to change is the IDIOTIC GROUPING. I go to my user and items are grouped:
2. Earlier This Month
3. Earlier This Year
4. A Long Time Ago
- I've tried to run from the Explorer icon as administrator and no go.
- I need my Explorer view with details (file name, files size, file ext) and I need the stupid OS to remember my decisions!!! Ugh!!!
Come on Microsoft, really!!!!???? This is putting me over the edge!!!!
OK now for my RANT......Hope nobody minds!!!
Why does MS insist on #$%^& with your experienced users!!!!???? I am seriously considering Linux. 15 years of MS and I think learning a completely different OS would be less painful than to deal with the idiocy with a that seems to exist in an organization that completely alienates it's experienced base. The RIBBON!!! Are you kidding!!! I've already downgraded Office!!!! Honestly, if you don't want to or don't have the ability to THINK, then maybe one should use an Apple but I personally take issue with that!
OK.....sorry, had to get it out of my system. I hope this doesn't upset the moderator
So in closing, can someone please help? Purchasing an add-on/plug-in is not an acceptable solution for me. Needing to make in depth changes to the registry, not really acceptable either. The option to Un-Check Auto Arrange should exist or Auto Arrange shouldn't be in the View Menu.
