Apd,

Something must have changed on your system to prevent the
documents folders from being listed there. Probably a registry
tweak.

Most likely. Over time I've made a number of registry...

No. Only searches from documents roots save the path.

Do you have the "indexing service" enabled ? If so, that might be the

Windows explorer and creating a filename which gets sorted /after/ the letters ?

Omega ( U+03A9 ) is sorted "last" ( after 'z' ).

Frank,

That's why I still also use the plain old 'dir' in a Command Prompt

The decorated "z" is Alt 0158 and not Alt 158. The leading 0 makes a

Siri,

Tilde (~) usually works, is easy to type, and is not displeasing to the
