Details view sort order

Example: 785.txt precedes 3241.txt.

I'd prefer the old way where the "3" precedes the "7".

Any way to change this?

Hi, Tom.

Was that perhaps 0785.txt? So that the "0" precedes the "3"?

You might want to read KB article 319827 from a few years ago, updated in
2007:
The sort order for files and folders whose names contain numerals is
different in Windows Vista, Windows XP, and Windows Server 2003 than it is
in Windows 2000
