What special character do you use to have a file sorted at the top?

<< < (2/7) > >>

superboyac : I use simply a minus sign " - " in front of the folder name, the marked folders still keep their alphabetical order.

What I've done in the past is stuff like this (for folders usually):

hehe Me too, for my own stuff. But for clients I usually go with a bit more sedate:

Yeah, I like the visual effect of that one!


I use -= Folder =- too! (But with the spaces)

I've no idea when I started doing this (probably around the time WinXP came out and long filenames came in) but I find it makes my most important folders stand out and look jolly official!

great mind think alike... ;D

Depending on what I'm doing, I use an exclamation point (majority of the time) or a tilde.  Some file managers don't sort the tilde to the top but (almost?) all sort the exclamation point to the top.

+1. I use the !.

You can also do multiples: ! !! !!! etc. to provide "levels" of importance.
