In OS X 10.9.2, I cannot arrange finder's files and folder by name and the files are sorted by random alphabetical order. Is that a bug or any work around?
Finder offers two sorting methods: Arrange By and Sort By.
In column view:
- Click View > Arrange By > None
- Hold down the Option key and click View > Sort By > Name
Each folder has a hidden file .DS_Store that controls these settings, so when things don’t redraw correctly after you change a preference, consider trashing that file or making a new clean folder and moving things into a new store.
