File explorer messed up



  • I’m a new user. I’m having a hard time with the file explorer inside PowerArchiver 2018. The sorting is completely messed up, while at the first glance it looks like the default sorting of Windows (A to Z, folders at the top) going down the list it becomes messier, there are like many separately sorted A-Z groups and often folders are sorted together among files etc. If I sort by type for example it starts with folder letters I until S, then some folders with random first letters, then starts from A until H, then M to Z, then some S, W, H, I, Q, C etc.

    Maybe related, my system language is non-english and I choose English in program settings. But PowerArchiver explorer language is the same as my system’s.

    Another problem is, when I type the file name to jump to its location as in Windows’ explorer, it beeps like there is no such file found. For this to work I must scroll the explorer until the file name I want to type becomes visible on the screen. So if I scroll the list further I can still type the file names I’ve previously seen. So if I scroll from top to the bottom only then I can find all the files inside that directory by typing.

    Version: 18.00.30

  • Sorting is fixed, could you fix the second problem too?

    I need to scroll the list first to be able to type and find the files/folders
