    When using Windows explorer in Win/XP, I am used to sorting files in a large
    folder by date modified so that I can quickly access the most recently
    modified files. However, In Vista beta 2 things have changed. Now any zip
    files (and I have a lot of zip files!) are listed as a subgroup first and
    sorted within that subgroup, then followed by all the other files. In Win/XP
    explorer there is no subgrouping of the zip files. Is there a way to sort all
    files simply by date modified and not have the list broken up into subgroups
    ? I have tried experimenting with some of the new Vista explorer options
    "group" and "stack" but have had no success !?
