Ok, this is a trivial matter, but it's annoying the hell out of me...

You know when you save/open files, the subfolders and the files are all in alphabetic order, with the subfolders listed first then the files?
Well, just recently, the order is reserved; instead of a-z, it's now z-a, with the folders at the back instead of front.

If I access the folders directly (like Start -> My Documents), the order is maintained as it should.
It ONLY happens when I want to save stuff from the net, or I try to open them from programs like MSPaint/MicroSoft Word.
I know I can just right-click and then "Arrange by name", but it's consistent and annoying.

Oh, I tried to System Restore from a savepoint which I know is before this change, but when the system starts up, it tells me it can't restore to that savepoint...

So... Help?

I'm watching you all. Always watching.

So... Help?

Let's try something here. Go to ANY folder (a folder that already is in perfect order) and follow the red rabbi- lines:



You don't have to set it to Details like it shows on the first picture. That's just the setting I use.

Open and Save should look right now. If it doesn't, I'm out of ideas... >U<

I'm not quite sure if this is the proper thread but anyway, is there a way to remove my post count based title and have it only display my custom title?

With a bit of heavy-duty editing on the forum code, it's possible. But it will affect everyone...

Then again, that might make the forum code vulnerable to attacks.

Which is precisely why I said it's not possible. Not only that, but it could also make the forum software vulnerable to just about anything if we make a mistake, as Wily said.

Who cares about titles anyway? Just pretend it's not there, it's not like anyone's going to care.

what about putting me and anyone else who wants it in to a user group that doesn't have a title?

because 1, its too much work to modify the code, to do that, there would have to be a new user group based off of the members, for only like, 3 or 4 people, which is a waste of code, since you can just ignore it anyway,

because 2 post count titles = E [ray splasher] and lets us tell whos newer than others,

because 3, does it bother you THAT much to be a C class hunter?

I made these sexcellent hunter icons... I thought you like them O^O

Btw, installation of a 4-in-1 driver for VIA chipset, and a patch for USB driver fixed my problem with gamepad. Works like a charm.

Stop complaining about something that you obviously cannot change. You have your answer already, and that answer is no.

Firefox runs animated GIF images at the CORRECT speed. If other software animates them at slower speeds, the problem is with the other software, not with Fx itself.

thats weird. With IE or any other, they run at their "normal" speed, while with FX they sometimes run overly fast. for the life of me, I cant figure this out.
I doubt that a Zero running gif is intended to run like hes racing Sonic the hedgehog.

I have a simple question.

If I have a slave hard drive for storage, would moving the stuff from the primary to the slave increase my computer's memory and speed? :\

No. Memory size, memory speed, memory bandwidth, processor bandwidth and processor speed have absolutely nothing to do with files being stored in one drive or another.
