Layout changed in My Computer

  DAG88 23:23 13 Nov 2003

I am using Windows Xp. Recently, the layout of the icons in My Computer changed from being arranged by the type of drives under sub titles etc to being listed like files in most other places such as My documents.
Does any1 know how to re-arrange them please?

Hit View and have a play with the view layout, titles, icons...

Right hand click on your desktop and select 'Arrange Icons By'.... and deselect 'Auto Arrange'.. now you can place them anywhere you like :-)
