10.7: Show folders last in Finder
Authored by: r-spx on Aug 03, '11 08:44:01AM

This doesn't work on my system all. I followed each step, and checked and rechecked each of the commands.

Put simply, there was no change. Files and folders were still mixed together. This is on OS X Lion, GM install from the App Store.

It's inexcusable for the editor of this site not to test these tips before they go live. Just get a virtual install of Lion to use for testing purposes if you don't want to f*** up your main system. There've been a handful of dud tips recently. What's the use of putting them up if they don't work?

10.7: Show folders last in Finder

Are you sure you entered it properly? And Relaunched Finder? The folders appear at the bottom for me, and I believe everyone else who commented.

I added a tilda (~) instead of a space, hoping it'd put the folders at the top (like in Leopard, Snow Leopard), but no dice :/

I'd prefer folders are the top, rather than the bottom, but I guess I'll use "Arrange By" instead--unless there's a way to put them at the top manipulating the strings file.

I changed the Folder string to Zolder and that brings them to the top in OS X 10.7.1.
