Thread: Sort non-standard characters at top of file lists

    Sort non-standard characters at top of file lists

    Whether using a file manager like Nautilus or at the command line, Ubuntu's behavior seems to be to to list directories with non-standard characters (underscore, plus sign, etc.) like, for example, "_temp" in with the T's.

    Is there a way that I can sort directories as Windows does, such that directories that begin with characters like "_" or "+" appear at the top/bottom of the list when sorted?

    I'd like to be able to name directories things like _temp so that they would appear at the top of a list of directories for visual separation.

    Thanks for any help!
