    Windows 8.1


    I figured out a solution! Instead of sorting the Files by Name, I sorted them by TAGS, then added a NUMBER to the name of each FILE!

    In other words, for the File that I wanted to be first, I added a 1, then added a 2 for the second one, etc. It's a bit complicated, but I don't want to touch the Registry, & a .Bat file that I thought would solve the problem didn't work after downloading it 4 times. Of course, every time I did an ad for Start8 popped up (I don't even own it).

    By the way I found out who invented Windows 8 & 8.1:

IE 11 - close link and return to the same location

Remove “Folders” and “Network locations” links in 8.1
Let me explain with a couple of screenshots. I just upgraded from Windows 8 to 8.1 and now I get a bunch of useless shortcuts in Windows Explorer when I try to open a file, or if I just plainly go to My Computer. Stuff like this: 41410 Or this: 41411
