Windows 7 Library Arrange By Not Working

General Support File explorer show files / folders in decent GROUP orderHi there Is there any way to customize (or use an alternative to) File explorer. Because for some absurd reason, if you sort by change date it ALSO changes the order of the folders vs files like it reverses it (detailed below).

It's possible your index is corrupt, but I have no idea. I wonder if your system doesn't have enough memory to process the sort - how much memory do you have? It's not new, but it can be very confusing. For example – and I'll probably say this repeatedly – Libraries are not folders.
