Viewing Files in 'Save As' windows

  BBW 06:21 11 Mar 2005

Since carrying out some installations and un-installations on my computer. I now find that when I open windows to save or start files they are all in date order.
In Explorer I am able to change the view, but the other windows do not have this facility. Can anyone advise, as I have used and prefer Alpabetical order for many years.

open folder, click on the 'name' title bar

Go to View, Arrange icons by, and select Name.

Many thanks for the prompt replies, but the answers refer to Windows Explorer. It's when I open programs, or save files, the windows are all in date order. They never used to be. This has affected all my programmes, and there is no 'view'or other options in these windows. Very strange.

Do you have Windows XP? If so, perhaps a system restore would do it.
I don't quite understand what 'windows' you refer to? Is it in Word?
I have a tool bar on all my folder pages like My Docs, Pics. etc.

Just a thought - perhaps the Toolbar has become 'hidden.'?

Don't you have a Views button in the SaveAs window?

Hi Guys, All my programmes have a:
File/Save As - feature which opens up a window of files in that programme.
e.g. Internet Explorerer; File/Save as.
Comes up with a window of files. All are in date order, but used to be in Alphabetical order. Scrolling down looking for files is driving me nuts. This particular window, in any programme does not have options for viewing.
I'll have to re-install 98SE I suppose.
