Default Please help me in arranging sub folders!

Hello,


In windows XP I have a folder named "2006" in which I have 12 sub folders named after each month. I would like the sub folders to appear in the regular order of the months:

January
February
March
April....ad so on

The problem is that the sub folders are arranged in alphabetical order as a default and I do not know how to change that. So the first sub folder is August instead of January. How could I fix this problem?

Thank you very much in advance for your help!

well i think you might just have to manually arrange them like that. you could always just put like 01 in front of january and put 02 in front of february and so on. then they would go in correct order by tellign windows to arrange them by name.

2_February
3_March
4_April
5_May
Something like that

ya, but, you would have to do 01 through 09, and then 10 through 12. if you just did 1 through 12, the order would be

Quote:
1_january
11_november
12_december
2_february
and so on. so you need to put the zeros.

edit: no, wait, you dont need the zeros after all. i just tried making some example folders labeled 1, 2, 11, and 12, and when i arranged them by named the order was 1, 2, 11, 12. i was wrong.
