    In in Save As dialogue the icons/list are in a mixed up order, right click as choose Arrange Icons By Name works. However is you go back to the same folder the order is mixed up again. Can anyone help me as this is really starting to annoy
     
  2. in arrange icons by, make sure " auto arrange in checked" then select "by name" and that should work ok

    its greyed out.
    the icons stay in position in explorer windows, its just the opn/save dialogues that they are screwy in

    If this should not work you may try the attached reg-file from http://www.dougknox.com . Quote: "This REG (Registry) file will Restore the defaults for Windows XP so that File Open and Save dialogs show the correct sort order.."

    Replace .txt with .reg - backup before using

    It is greyed out if you are in list or detail view, it is not greyed out if you are in thumbnail, icon or tile view.
