Can you do this in W8 with files and folders ?

    Do you have a another computer, a friends maybe, that you give this (disable auto arrange) a test drive on to see if it may meet your needs?

    One note that could relate to this is:

    When you disable auto arrange, and either unzip a file in a folder, move a folder, or rename a folder, it will refresh and auto arrange the files in that specific folder only after each time you do this. Auto arrange is still disabled for that folder, but you will need to arrange the files back to whatever non-auto arranged order you like again after unzipping a file in a folder, move a folder, or rename a folder.

    It works but it doesn't work inside Libraries which where all my stuff is. The ListView control doesn't support Libraries, only ItemView does. Plus it introduces other annoyances in List view like no empty space to left click which Windows 7's ItemsView doesn't have.
