    i have a folder that has a large amount of photos in it. When i add to it all i do is choose "arrange files by modified" that way my new photos are at the bottom. Well recently windows xp wont let me do that. instead it seems to think its full of music files and will only let me arrange by "artist,duration, etc etc" how do i get it back to thinking its photos?

    You should have an icon on next to the "Search" and "Folders" icons, with a down arrow. This should give you the options you are looking for.

    I am assuming you are right clicking and going that rout. :dunno:

  3. Right click on the folder the photos are in and click properties. Then click the customize tab. There should be a drop down menu for folder templates. Select pictures or select documents which I think is usually the default for new folders. Then click apply followed by OK. Hopefully that will help.
