    When using windows explorer I am used to sorting a folder with a large number
    of files by date modified so that I can quickly access the most recently
    modified files. However in Vista beta 2, things have changed. I have a large
    number of zip files in this folder and explorer now groups all the zip files
    first and sorts them by date modified, followed by all the other files in
    date modified order. The XP version of explorer did not group the zip files
    first and sorted all by date modified. Is there a way in Vista to sort all
    the files by date modified and NOT have the zip files listed first as a
    separate subgroup ? I have tried experimenting with the new Vista sorting
    options "stack" and "group" but have been unsuccessful.
