Randomly ordered files

Randomly ordered files

Using my Win 7 computer and clicking on the taskbar Dropbox icon, then the file icon, my file folders are listed in reverse alphabetical order, and my files which are not in folders are listed in apparently random order.  How do I restore simple alphabetical order throughout the listing?

Hey there @JayArr
 
Please bear in mind that the Dropbox folder on your computer is just like any other folder on your hard drive. As such, the sorting options would be OS-based, as they would for other folders.

If I’m not mistaken, you should be able to click on the (Name) column bar that has the pointed upwards or downwards arrow to sort items by (alphabetical) ascending or descending order.
I hope this helps!
