I had just opened a file but you can do that at the top of your docs too.

That's in Windows Explorer. Shortcut is Windows Key+E, or just click the Explorer icon in your start menu.

Re: Folders/Files Are Showing In Reverse Alpha Order

What version of windows you using ?

Heres what I would do in Vista (it should be close in XP)

Windows Key+E , the right click, the scroll down one to Sort by hover over that and click name click it again to reverse order !

similiar to what SM and Dogg they both are right !

If this dont help can you take a screenshot of what you are talking about?

Not sure what you mean by excel or word? If I saw a pic probably clear it up

If you are talking about a excel spreadsheet if you are using same version as me you should see a thing on top right says editing then click on a-z like in this pic
Sort Filter

Here you go!

To resolve this behavior, and reset the default sort order:

 
  1. Right-click Start, click Explore, & then click drive C.

  2. On the View menu, click Details.

  3. Click the Name column to sort items by name, press & hold down the CTRL key, & then quit Windows Explorer by clicking Close in the upper-right corner of the screen.

  4. Release the CTRL key.

  5. Restart your computer.

 

Note: You must perform these steps exactly as they are listed. For example, do not quit Windows Explorer by clicking Exit on the File menu.
