    File Manager Display. Confused over layout

    Hello,

    I like to view details in windows explorer/file manager.

    An example is shown below,

    Sometimes the file manager has weird layouts when viewing files.
    This weird layout includes descriptors such as Application (1) , Configuration settings (3) , and Data Base File (1).

    I just don't understand why this happens. How do I change this? Is this normal?
    Below is a screenshot showing an example,

    Thank you for your time.

    tptagth,

    On the View Tab -> Click Group By dropdown arrow -> Select None.

    That will at least get rid of the groupings. HTH
