Title: Guys i need help with some file sorting! D:
Post by: coloradohugge on March 16, 2014, 05:23:58 pm
Im working on some glitchpokémon things on my computer and im taking alot of screenshots and name the pictures by the pokémons hex number index, and i really want to store all the pictures by hexadecimal in the folder, but i don't know how to do it. This is how my computer sorts files by their names: (Attachment picture 1), and i would really like this examplefile called "0A" to be moved like this: (Attachment picture 2). so that in the end it will look like this in the folder: (Attachment picture 3). Plz help!!! =)

I'm not sure if there is an option, although windows 8 doesn't seem to do this.  First thing I would do though is to enable file extensions, which won't solve the problem but makes things infinitely simpler. 

On windows 8, go to the view tab, then select Options, and then click the view tab, and then uncheck "Hide extensions for known file types".  Then select OK.  This will have all files show their true name, such as "0A.txt" or "0A.png". 

On earlier versions, I believe you get to it in a similar way.  Look for a menu item named "Folder and Search options". 

Anyways, what version of windows are you running? 

Try setting your current folder's view to "details".  Additionally, try clicking on "Name" and swapping the order.

Since A is considered greater than 9 when binary sorting, this may be of some use: http://maximumpcguides.com/windows-7/turn-off-numerical-sorting-in-windows-explorer/

Well, i do have a Windows 8 currently.

Sure, I'll try this. And I´ll see if it works.
