    File Sorting (Home Premium)

    How come, if I name a file or folder with something that starts with a ~ , it will show up first in the list alphabetically sometimes, but last alphabetically others?

    Obviously there are two kinds of "alphabetically" at play here. How come and from where?

    It depends on whether you sort ascending or descending.

    And regardless of the sort order, subfolders are always sorted after files, so if you create a subfolder whose name starts with ~, it will be listed below all files, whatever their names may be.

    So it *is* my just being careless and having the sort set differently...

    'Cause on the character map, ~ is showing below the alphabet.
