Unable to cancel auto arrange of folders in library, pictures and document
Views: 42
cannot move folders or items in folders to other locations within 'pictures' or 'documents'. The black, vertical location bar does not appear when I click on a folder to move it around , and on releasing the mouse button the folder returns to it's origional position. Tried both left and right clicking on folders and in spaces in between but no option to deselect 'auto arrange ' appears, - only variuos options within an auto arrange system

Windows 7 does not have the Auto Arrange Option/or can not be turned off

Windows 7 does not have the Auto Arrange Option/or can not be turned off Icon
So, why Windows 7 turns off Auto Arrange ? I feel very annoying that I cannot arrange the files/pictures the way I want.
Keeping files organised and having the option to is great but having it forced upon me is not! I keep the majority of my pictures/files in alphabetical order but there are certain files/pictures which came from different sources and I access regularly and would like to keep out of sorting sequence made automatically by Windows 7.
Was the Windows 7 wiritten in such a way that the Auto arrange option is disabled? Or this option can be re-enabled. Please somebody helps with an answer!
I know I am not the only user that feels this way as I have seen thread after thread asking how to disable auto arrrange within folders.
 

Include folders in a library

Include folders in a library Icon
A library gathers content from various folders. You can include folders from different locations in the same library, and then view and arrange the files in those folders as one collection. For example, if you keep some of your pictures on an external hard drive, you can include a folder from that hard drive in your Pictures library, and then access that folder's files in your Pictures library whenever the hard drive is connected to your computer.

An easy way to locate and view pictures on your computer is to use the Pictures library. By default, the Pictures library shows all the pictures located in the My Pictures folder, but you can include other folders in your Pictures library, too.
 

Unable to create new folder. File System Error 512

Unable to create new folder. File System Error 512 Icon

I've been unable to create new folders in my public pictures library lately. Whenever I do, I get a File System Error 512 message.

One forum respondent said that Windows 7 had a hardwired limit of 50 folders under Pictures. Even though I already had 61 folders, I went ahead and tidied up until now I only have 39 folders directly under Pictures. However, the problem still persists.

Just for the record, I've also done a registry cleanup, obviously have rebooted, etc.

 

Arrange file/folder information- do not want to "auto arrange"

Arrange file/folder information- do not want to "auto arrange" Icon
I am using Windows 7 Ultimate. I want to be able to arrange icons and pictures in a file or folder. I DO NOT want them to "auto arrange". This is such a simple thing, but everywhere I look it is telling me to arrange by "something" ie. date, tag, size, etc. I simply want to move them into the order I want them
 

Undo auto arrange for documents

Undo auto arrange for documents Icon
I just installed Windows 7. With Vista, I could arrange my documents anyway I see fit; however, with Windows 7 I am unable to do so. My question, is there a way to disable the auto arrange so I can arrange My Documents the way I want? This is a deal breaker. If M.S. does not have this feature I will change my OS [to Apple]--once again, it is time I buy a new computer.

Unable to access/create Library

Unable to access/create Library Icon

We recently installed Yahoo messenger and suddenly the Library folder isn't showing any folders/files under the Administrator account. When I go to create a new Library it reads the following error message: "Unable to create the new file 'New Library.library-ms' File System Error: (16389)."

Not only is the library no longer accessible, but I cannot access any of the Music, Pictures or Documents from the Start Menu. I am only able to access the folders using the search bar by selecting "User Name" from the drop down box, then suddenly everything's there.

It will not allow me to drag/drop anything into the Library folder or even create a new one.

 

Cannot view library picture library subfolders when attempting to attach photo to email

Cannot view library picture library subfolders when attempting to attach photo to email Icon

I am using Windows 7 Professional. When I create an email in Yahoo or Gmail and want to attach a photo," go to the Pictures folder in my library, no pictures show - but they are there, I just can't see the folders.

I have subfolders by year, this which is what I want to see. The last time I attempted this, probably a few weeks ago, there was no problem, all folders showed, like usual. I can search within the page/bar, "search my pictures," and type in a name or date and everything will show, but I really just want to see the folders because I know exactly where everything is. How can I get this option to see my folders back?
