Stop treating .zip-files different

Discussion in 'Windows Vista File Management' started by Erik Wikström, Jun 26, 2006.

  1. Anyone knows how to stop Windows (explorer.exe) from treating .zip-files
    different from normal files? I can see the idea of treating .zip-files
    like folders if you use Windows' built-in zip-handling but I've already
    got a compression-application that I'm very happy with and use for all
    compressed files on the computer.

    In a folder where I have a lot of files I like to sort them based on
    last modification so that I always have quick access to the most recent
    versions everything except .zip-files behaves as expected. .zip-file
    however are grouped together at the top of the folder, below normal
    folders but above other files.
