4.) Basic thoughts on deactivating grouping in File Explorer, and the consequences!

Grouping in File Explorer is a feature that groups files into folders based on certain criteria, such as: B. by date, type or size. This can be a helpful way to organize and find files. However, there are also a few reasons why you might want to disable grouping.

Benefits of Disabling Grouping

- Improved Overview: When files are not grouped, it is easier to see them at a glance. This can be particularly useful for folders with many files.

- Increased flexibility: Without grouping, you can sort files according to your own criteria. This can be helpful if you want to organize files in a specific pattern.

- Better performance: Grouping can affect File Explorer performance, especially for folders with many files.

Disadvantages of Disabling Grouping

- Reduced Organization: Without grouping, it can be harder to find files sorted by certain criteria.

- Increased workload: Without grouping, you have to manually sort files if you want to organize them in a specific pattern.

Consequences of disabling grouping

If you disable grouping in File Explorer, files in folders will no longer be grouped according to specific criteria. Instead, they are displayed in a simple list. This can improve clarity and organization of files, but can also increase workload if you want to sort files according to specific criteria.

Which method is the right one?

Whether you should disable grouping in File Explorer depends on your personal needs and preferences. If you want to improve clarity and flexibility, disabling grouping can be a good option. If you want to improve organization and performance, you should keep grouping enabled.
