Hey @mrBeep, I hope you're doing well! 

 

If I understand this correctly, you wish to know if you'd be able to sort content by their file type when using the website, is that correct? 

 

You can sort files via two options, 'Order' and 'Show’, by clicking on the column header. 

 

If you click on ‘Show’ it will display your content depending on how you choose: name, type, extension, size, modified date, or members.

 

You can see more about that here

 

I hope this helps!
