Windows Explorer Auto Arrange - Disable in Windows 8

How to Disable Auto Arrange in File Explorer to have Free Sorting in Windows 8 and 8.1

information   Information
In Windows 8, auto arrange is enabled by default so that all file and folder names in File Explorer are sorted alphabetically no matter what folder view you used.

This is basically like having how you can arrange icons how you like on your desktop in every folder in Files Explorer now.

This will show you how to disable Auto Arrange to be able to sort your files and folders in any random order you like in File Explorer without it having to be sorted alphabetically by name in Windows 8, Windows RT, Windows 8.1, and Windows RT 8.1. Windows 8 will also remember these random folder sortings, and open as how they were when the window was last closed.

Note   Note


  • When auto arrange is disabled, you can arrange items in any order and position using Extra Large Icons, Large Icons, Medium Icons, Small Icons, and Extended Tiles folder views.

  • When auto arrange is disabled, and you are using Details folder view, you can only arrange items in any order and not in any position.

  • When auto arrange is disabled and you switch from a Extra Large Icons, Large Icons, Medium Icons, Small Icons, and Tiles folder view to Details folder view, it will reset auto arrange to list all items in the folder in the order that you had them arranged in instead of any position. You will have to rearrange the positions how you like again afterwards.

  • 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.

  • The Auto arrange and Align to grid options, when you right click or press and hold on an empty area in the folder and click on View, are only available (not grayed out) while using the Extra Large Icons, Large Icons, Medium Icons, Small Icons, and Tiles folder view.

  • To enable or disable auto arrange for a specific folder, you can right click or press and hold on an empty area in the folder, click/tap on View, then click/tap on Auto arrange to uncheck (disable) or check (enable) it for that specific folder.

  • If you use Apply to Folders, it will reset auto arrange to list all items in the folders in the order that you had them arranged in instead of any position. Using Apply to Folders will also have View -> Auto arrange checked (enabled) afterwards for all these folders. You will need to uncheck Auto Arrange in each folder affected by "Apply to Folders" to be able to arrange in any position in these folders again.

warning   Warning
DO NOT USE this tutorial in any other OS than Windows 8.

  • While this tutorial will allow you to disable auto arrange in the Libraries folder itself, it will not disable auto arrange inside any of the other library folders (ex: Documents, Music, Pictures, Videos).
  • Free sorting is not available if you use "Group by" views instead of only "Sort by" views.
  • Free sorting is not available in the List and Content folder views.


EXAMPLE: Auto Arrange Enabled and Disabled
NOTE:
Notice in the screenshot with Auto Arrange disabled, the files can be dragged around the File Explorer window to sort how you like without having to be in alphabetical order.

Hello Tomek, and welcome to Eight Forums.

I noticed that under the address bar in your File Explorer does not look normal. Do you have a program installed that did that? If so, it could be conflicting with auto arrange not being remembered.

It could indeed be causing it with any customizations it made. :(

I've activated this Disable Auto-arrange on Windows 8.1 Pro and it does what it's purported to do. However, I'm disappointed in that I cannot save this new arrangement and store/move it in it's new layout. When a file was saved to a USB flash drive, it reverted back to the original format, based on dating. Isn't there some way I can renumber the photos or in some manner maintain their order once I've reorganized them and save them that way permanently?

Can you recommend some program on windows 8.1 that will allow the drop-down menu after pressing start button ?
I do not want metro screen.

I'm afraid not that I'm aware of. Anything that causes the folder to refresh will also cause the files to auto arrange. :(

auto-arrange checkbox missing

i cant find the auto-arrange checkbox. I assume where you're looking at is the "View" tab in "Folder Options which you get to under the "View" menu at the top of Windows Explorer. Can someone help me find it?

Hello manyhat55ink, and welcome to Eight Forums.

That would only be available if you used OPTION ONE in the tutorial. Afterwards, the Auto arrange and Align to grid options, when you right click or press and hold on an empty area in the folder and click on View, are only available (not grayed out) while using the Extra Large Icons, Large Icons, Medium Icons, Small Icons, and Tiles folder view.

Hope this helps for now, :)
Shawn

I tried this with Option one and it didn't work. I can see the auto arrange option and it is not checked, but when I change a filename, it automatically puts in into the list where it belongs. I do see one difference, the list stays at the place where I was instead of switching to the new filenames place (In other words, if the original filename started with an A and I change it to start with a Z, the list stays at the A part of the list instead of switching). Is that limit of the options I can change?

Option One disables auto arrange by default.

If you click on the auto arrange option, does it then get checked and auto arrange files in that folder again?

That shows that you are using Details view instead of Extra Large Icons, Large Icons, Medium Icons, Small Icons, or Tiles for the Auto arrange and Align to grid options.
