Using windows 7, file explorer, sort by name or type and sldasm and slddrw files are not separated.
Is there a solutions to this?
Surely, if you sort by file type, then the files will be all the .sldasm, all the .slddrw, then all the .sldprt, but, crucially, within the file type groups they will be in filename order. I think that is what happens in Windows 10, anyway.
No, that is not what is happening, as shown in the screenshot in my original post.
Here's a screen shot of sort by "file type" with the display option "details"
Something wrong with the file type.
Either SW install didn't set it correctly or Windows registry is corrupted.
You have sldasm and slddrw as Sldworks 2018 Application.
sldasm should be Solidworks Assembly Document.
slddrw should be Solidworks Drawing Document.
Try a repair on Solidworks.
You need to add a column for the "file extension". Right now you are sorting by "document type". Right click next to "Type" and select "More", then select "File Extension".
That is not the case. Type is the correct term. Frederick listed correct values to show in Win 7 Windows Explorer. My column Type lists things correctly as explained. Furthermore, neither Extension nor File Extension is available to Choose Details as you describe.
Yes, I see that now. Thank you so much for pointing that out.
