    The one thing I find requiring desktop use for files for is to group certain files together in a custom order that I like. Having a spacer between certain groups helps me quickly identify items I need that belong together. If windows were to incorporate this feature into folders, that would change things immensely. I do also understand grouping each of these groups into their own folders, but liking them sorted in a custom manner still prevents that.

    I can't believe in this matured computer age that we still don't have the cascade or more advanced visual folder expansion view format available. We are still using this age old folder look. Should have better system like mouse over and your folder or file will just be view enlarged or organized for better viewing or identifying purpose. Why they do not develop folder windows to open in the width and height that we can specify so every time we open it is in the dead center and all files automatically snap into evenly spaced matter. Why do we have to sort each folder one by one?

    I use Mac High Sierra. I still cannot find a way to drag a series of
    files to a new folder and maintain their original order. Sometimes it is
    important to have your files remain in a particular order, like with
    song files for example. In my case it is with Impulse Responses used in
    music production. The problem is that when I drag a group of files to a
    new folder the order is always changed to an alphabetical order no
    matter what choice I choose from the 'sort by' drop-down menu in folder
    tools. Is their some way around this?

    wow that's the best video so far about file sorting! I'm interested in the labeling system but I don't know how to use it properly on Windows without it being a ditto folder.

    You might also consider using the folder action app, Hazel, for automatically moving files or trashing files based on the rules you set. SuperTab and Alfred are also very good for getting at files.

    Thanks Paul. I like the way you use tags, I will try to use it in my filing system. I know you are not a big fun of having docs on the desktop but it does make sense sometimes when you want to have a quick access to a folder that you use regularly (eg Clients)… I discovered for that the Aliases and what it does it creates a link on your desktop (when I create an alias I drag it on the desktop) to the original folder stored in your file system . In this way you keep organized your files but you create a shortcut from the desktop. It works very well for me, I hope you will find it useful.

    Paul, thanks for the vid 🙂 looks like you use tags quite well, I've never been able to get into them because I used them as a second form of file naming (which didn't work as I have too many files and its so much faster doing a spotlight search!). I see from your tag names its better to use them as a form of processing and handling documents, kind of like arranging various piles of documents on a desk. I think a lot of people don't use tags because they don't work as a file labelling system!

    i created A to Z folders… so when i need something (specially with clients) i go to that letter. Documents/S/Subway. 🙂

    How do you set up tags in Windows Explorer? I know I can tag files and search for them but didnt think you could set up the tags to select for a quick search as you have. Appreciate yours is a mac
