    Anyway to make file explorer show folders in GROUPS


    Hi there.

    Is there any way in the file explorer / windows explorer to show files / folders in Groups. I never realized how useful this is until I started using Dolphin more and more (even for Windows files - via network shares). Particularly good when you've got zillions of file / directories on modern large drives e.g 3 TB drives.

    Enc screenshot of what I mean (Dolphin file manager in KDE - any Linux distro with KDE or Dolphin as file manager).

    Cheers

    Hello form Macedonia, dear friends.
    Could someone of you please help me?
    I have problem wit limited connectivity on my laptop (Samsung) but also on my iPhone 4 and my wife`s LG optimus 5 duo all at the same time. I changed yesterday my router speedport which performed wireless connectivity problems, with a same one- and the problem is actually the same.For every 30 minutes I have limited access on my laptop, iPhone 4 and LG 5. If i restart the router it is OK for a while, and then again the same story. Someone told me to switch off wireless option on both phones, which made connectivity normal on my Samsung laptop.
    I repeated, I changed two routers and the problem persists.
    I will be highly appreciated if someone helps me to resolve this issue
    Thanks in advantage,
    Armend

    I use Free commander XE, which can do it. Windows file manger has too many limitations for me.

    Hi Dave

    Thanks - I'll look at that one -- Once you get used to some things with better facilities it's hard going back to the old system. I suppose it's because I always assumed Windows was the only way of doing some things !!! Very wrong !!

    @armend -- post network type questions in the Networking section - otherwise everything gets mixed up and the forum becomes unuseable.

    Cheers

    Well, Jimbo, you know your way around computers, but, Free commander has an overdose of customization options, but once you get there, it is a pleasure to use.
