Change order of starred files by dragging and dropping

Change order of starred files by dragging and dropping

Helpful | Level 6

Hello,

I have maybe a half dozen files/folders currently that I have starred for easy access on my Home page, and I am wondering if there is a way to control what order they are in besides un-starring them and then re-starring with the fact that the most recent will be at the top in mind?

That method is really cumbersome, but it bothers me seeing them in whatever random order I happened to star them, as well as the fact that anything over 5 is hidden by default so potentially the most important file is not even immediately visible when I sign in.

If there is not currently another way to do this that I am overlooking, I'd like to submit it as a suggestion for future options. The ability to drag and drop them into the order a person prefers would be awesome, but even being able to organize by type, ETC would be an improvement.

Thanks!

Please get starred folders. It is the only way to work with files

The starred function is great for home page and fast access to most frequently needed files and folders.  However it woudl be even better if you could edit the order in which the items appear, by dragging etc.   At present the only way o order in a given fashion is to write everything down you need and add them in reverse order to the blank list.  Or am I missing something here?  Thanks.

Hi all,

 

Currently it seems like the list of starred folders sorts with the most recently added at the top. I recently upvoted an idea to be able to manually sort the list of starred folders. I'd really like to be able to manually drag and order them in any order I wished. Hopefully the developers can do this without too much difficulty.

 

Cheers
