    Display Nautilus 'Places' pane in alphabetical order

    How can I change the order in which Nautilus displays the left pane in alphabetical order? I can change how it displays them in the main window but not the left pane.

    I have several partitions and when I open Nautilus, they are not displayed in order. I've noticed that they will be placed in alphabetical order at times but I don't know how that comes about. It seems to be a result of logging off then back on. I use NFS and it logs me into all my network folders upon login so it gets cumbersome looking for the location of the drive I want to access by scrolling down the pane.

    This is so in the 'Tree' view as well.

    Does anyone know?

    Thanks

    Open Nautilus .... Go to "Bookmarks" menu > "Edit Bookmarks"

    The "Edit Bookmarks" window shows a list on the left. You can drag-and-drop theses into whatever order you choose.

    Does this help?
