Software :: Way To Separate Folders Vs Files In Alpha Numeric Order?

Aug 19, 2009

When opening up folders and files in Finder, is there a way that would group all folders first, then files below. When I currently view in Finder, files and folders are listed in Alpha Numeric order and are mixed together in such order.

I was wondering if there was a way to separate folders vs files in Alpha Numeric order?

OS X :: Setting Files And Folders Order?

Jul 14, 2010

I know nothing about Macs at the moment (Windows user all my life). I bought a Mac Book Pro 5 days ago and I'm quite happy with it

However I've noticed a strange behaviour with folders and files display. In windows the folders are displayed first and then the files. However in MAC the files are mixed with folders. Here is a screenshot of how they look (order by name):

There should be first the folders and then the mp3, right?

I think 2 days ago I didn't have this problem but I'm not sure. As I've said I'm new to MAC and there are many things new.

OS X V10.6 Snow Leopard :: Sorting Files Within Folders In Specific Order?

Mar 31, 2012

How I can sort my files within folders in a specific order? Not in alphabetical order, size, date, kind etc...but in an order that I want them in (documents from school to be exact, I would like to sort them in the progression of the lessons from week to week). I never knew how to do this at the time and now I am kind of learning how to sort all of my docs within Finder, but this seems to be the first stumbling block that I've come across?

MacBook Pro :: Order To Upgrade To Lion After Putting In A Brand New Hard Drive In It?

Apr 9, 2012

I  have a 2008 macbook pro with brand new 500GB hard drive and 6GB new RAM.    My old hard drive is backed up on external drive, via time machine. When the shop put in the new hard drive (there was nothing wrong with old one, it was just stuffed to the brim), they loaded snow leopard from a disk, but I haven't put anything from the old drive back on yet....I haven't even configured my mail and am just reading mail  from ipad and phone these days. 

Should I install Lion before I restore all the old backed-up stuff, or is it important to have anything, ( like maybe preferences)  already on the computer when I download Lion.  I want to be selective when restoring from time machine, because my old hard drive had a lot of ancient software and junk on it that had migrated from every computer we've ever owned, and that is many, many.So, I'm just stuck on the best way to proceed.  Also, should I install the latest update for 10.6.8 before I download Lion? I see today that some new updates have become available; java, security, safari, and apple software installer.

OS X V10.7 Lion :: Finder Changes Views When Deleting Files / Folders?

May 23, 2012

In Snow Leopard: I open a Finder window in column view that has a long list of content, scroll down to the bottom of the column and delete a file/folder. The file/folder disappears but the rest of the window content is unchanged. IE: if my view showed me R S T U V and I delete T, my view would be R S U V.  In Lion, I do exactly the same thing and the Finder jumps to the top of the column. IE: When I delete T, my window jumps to A B C D E instead of staying focused on R S U V.I've got a new Mac Mini with the 2.7 Ghz i7 upgrade... but otherwise stock. Currently running 10.7.4.

IMac (Intel) :: Moving Files / Folders In Finder

Aug 23, 2014

10.8 and 10.9 become a headache copying/moving files/folders between disks. After download selected images to my Imac from cards I used to move all of them to a local network backup disk (attached to a linux OS)

I don't do this anymore from a year ago: annoying warnings like "the file ... is in use" (not in use, even had been downloaded) stopped move; repeated procedure with the rest of the files included the 'used' one, over and over again and finally, after 12 times or so all files had moved. 100 files to move, stop, 80 files to move, stop, 60 files....... 

Same problem moving files between disks attached to the same iMac.'You have to provide an admin password...." -> Continue   Password set and again 'File ... is in use' (not in use, it is just backup file)Reseting the Mac.  Worse

.'You have to provide an admin password...."  No 'Continue' option, just only 'Ok' that will do.... nothing.My solution: Terminal: sudo mv source target 

I guess Finder has been tought to make life easier, isn't it?

OS X Mavericks :: Can't See Any Folders / Files For Games Downloaded Via Steam In Finder

Sep 6, 2014

I am operating an iMac with OS X 10.9.4. I have a glitch common to other Mac users in the game "War Thunder" as a result of a game update. The game maker has suggested a fix which requires going into the game folders and deleting the cache:

One potential fix for this issue is to clear (delete all files) from the following folder /Applications/ WarThunder Contents/ WarThunder. app/Contents/Resources/ game/cache"

However, when I go into finder the War Thunder launcher contents folder shows only the folders MacOS and Resources. Each contains one file. It does not show up in the Application Support folder even though the following string from the log suggests that the folders and files are all there; "  9.37 [D]  skipping identical / users/davidmcleod/library/application support/steam/steamapps/common/war thunder/ contents/ resources/game/ content/pkg_tanks/res/pkg_tanks_tanks/ " 

why I can't see the full list of folders or why they aren't actually there despite being able to play the game up until the glitch?

OS X :: Putting Folder In Dock To Be Opened In Finder?

Sep 15, 2009

Is there a way to put a folder in the Dock so that it just opens Finder instead of a stack? OS X won't let me drag it to the left side, nor can I find a option to make folders on the right open in Finder by default. I'm running Snow Leopard.

OS X V10.7 Lion :: Macbook Pro Putting Files From External HDD In The Trash Bin?

Jul 2, 2012

I just got my new macbook pro today , and when I plugged in my toshiba portable external HDD, the computer put every (or what appears to be every) file in the trash bin. Strangely, the files are still on the HDD and the files disappear when I eject it. I reconnected the hard drive multiple times and the problem still persists. I cannot find one logical explanation as to why this is happening.

OS X V10.7 Lion :: Organization Of List In Finder - Cannot Do It In Alphabetical Order

Apr 14, 2012

when I see the files in one of the folders in the finder, in list view only, they are organized from Z to A and I want to change that to see them from A to Z. I cannot do it. I used to change the list by clicking the ¨name¨, but now that doesn´t work. If I change the view to icons or cover flow, the same files are organized alphabetically. It seems I changed that (I mean from Z to A) once, before I got Lion, and now I cannot reverse the organization of files.

OS X :: Unable To Access Folders / Folders Are Locked After Transferring Files From External Hd

Aug 28, 2009

I bought a Seagate Free Agent Go Flex External drive. I transferred all my files from my previous external HD. When I went to access my folders on my external HD, the folders are all locked, with Sharing and Permission section in the Information "Everyone: Read" only! I can't change any of the information or move things! All of them are locked and "read only." I know how to change it, but only manually, individually. I have several hundreds of folders and I don't want to manually change all of them to "Read & Write." Is their a way to let me re-set the folders to "Read & Write" easily??
