weird file sorting

  1. Sometimes whenever i move files to another folder it organizes it badly. Used to never do this, but recently whenever i move alot of files that are numerically in order (file 1, file 2, file 3) it mixes them around. Here is an example: the first time i noticed this problem i was moving an audiobook onto Itunes i would move all 20 something files over to the folder, then i'd look at them and it would go something like this, audio 1 audio 2 audio 3 audio 4 audio 5 audio 16 audio 17 audio 18 audio 19 audio 6 audio 7...

    at first i thought that it was itunes but then i tried to back up saved files and it did the same thing but with save 1 save 2 etc. It isn't a big deal to me but is there a problem i'm missing or should i just get used to reorganizing everything myself.

    Right-click on a blank section of the folder and choose Arrange Icons By->Name. Then you should be good to go.
