Windows XP: Putting Your Files into Groups

Windows XP allows you to organize your files and folders in to groups (such as: Name, Size, Type, or Modified). For example, you can arrange all the files by Type, which means that all the files of a particular type will be grouped together.

Follow the instructions below to organize your files by group:
  • Open the Windows Explorer, then open a folder (i.e.: My Documents, My Music, or My Pictures.) or drive that contains several types of folders and files.
  • Right-click an empty area of the window, select 'Arrange Icons By', and then select 'Show in Groups'.
  • Right-click an empty area of the window again, then select 'Arrange Icons By', and select: Name, Size, Type, or Modified.
