When I load up Query Analyzer and click File -> Open to open up a query
file, the open file dialog is always sorted by - i don't know
How can I set the default to open up with files ordered alphabetically?
Query Analyzer uses the default directory order for the system, which is set from a registry entry somewhere in the bowels of Windows itself. The default order can be changed for all of the applications on a machine, but I don't remember how.
I missed the part about her using Windows 98, although I remember the problem from back then too. This became a registry fix starting with Windows 2000, but I don't remember the registry key or the values anymore because I haven't needed it for years.
