Folder files not listed in alphabetical order

Post by crgibson »

Just installed Linux Mint cinnamon 19.3
I find that folder files are not listed in alphabetical order.
How do I correct this? Step by step please.

Thanks for any help!

Screenshot? By default they should be listed in order. My folders are listed before my files and all in alphabetical order? Which file manager are you using?

Out of my mind - please leave a message

I'm using mate 19.3, and if I click on the top in the column header it sorts for that column, click again and it reverses the order.
So clicking the top of the name column sorts for alphabetical order, clicking in the date column sorts for date, etc.
And every linux distro I've used behaves that way
