    Filing Documents in Alphabetical Order 17th May 18 at 10:54 AM
    Hi


    I have a large number of documents saved onto a USB stick. What do I need to do to get them to appear in alphabetical order? I went into organize but there does not appear to be an option there.


    Thank you
    Val

    I don't recognise "Organise", but if you can start Windows Explorer and select the USB Flash Drive you can just click on the heading called "Name" in the right-hand pane, once or twice.

    ^ Yep, depends what device, and operating system you're on. And you're not really saving anything in order, you can just view it in different ways.
    Assuming it's a recent Windows version, open the USB drive in Explorer, and look for 'View'. Firstly you'll want to select 'list' or 'small icons' or similar, then along the top of the list of files, there will be categories shown like name, size, date. If you click on 'Name' it should go alphabetically, and if you click it again, it'll reverse that. Similarly, click size to arrange by size, etc.
    The files aren't actually 'saved' in any order like that.
