    Working With Files and Folders Within a Folder

    Hello. I have a folder on my computer that has many files as well as many folders in it. I want to alphabetize all of the itmems within this folder but the best I can do is have it show me all the folders in alphabetical order and then all the files will begin and be shown in alphabetical order. What im looking for is to have all the files and folders intertwined in alphabetical order and not folders and then files. I hope Im not confusing. Thanks for any help.

Is there a way to search for folders (by folder name)?
Does anyone know if it is possible to set up windows search to return directories in addition to files in the search results? If you have ever used Launchy you probably have a good idea of the functionality I am talking about. Thanks in advance.
