Hi forum,

Is there a way to sort the "New" list (items) alphabetically? Or change the item names and then sort them alphabetically? What type of sorting are they?!
I prefer #3 (SS below). I use it (New) a lot to creating txt file in folders.

In File Explorer I set the View to Details and clicking each column heading can change/toggle the line-up, gets me quickly to the latest file/s added to the Folder.

@Edwin
Many thanks. I didn't know that (the trick). But it has some problems. The key adds the new item just to Desktop's right-click (Home), that's great (#3). It doesn't add it to the "New Right Click" :woozy: (#2). It even doesn't appear in (folder's) Explorer right-click (#4). Somehow useless and functional just for Desktop.
But another interesting thing is there in #3. Do you know what type of sorting it is? First "Text" (T), then "Open in Terminal" (O), finally "Search" (S), OTS or OST?!
I think Microsoft have their own English Alphabet Table. They sit, think and conclude they know better than others do, and then say why we are not changing the world and don't make it a better place for life by changing the alphabet order!
Everything I have learned about English is gone! I have to start again based on Microsoft's Specific English Language Centre. OH OH… MNEE* is starting.

Thanks. You are talking about Explorer (Window) sorting. I think you mean that topmost (first) row and that tiny triangle (by clicking on the top row, sort type would change). I think you've got it wrong (my question) :think:.

Add the entry to Directory as well then...
Computer\HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Directory\background\shell\New Text Document

Sorts as you add them! 🤷‍♂️
