As far as I have found, there doesn''t seem to be a way to change this. You might try messing around with the solution file (in notepad).

It''s not always alphabetic. Depending on how you add a file/folder, it will either be alphabetically sorted in, or be added to the bottom.

It matters b/c my current project is approaching 70 files and I want to be able to sort them in some logical way. Even if I put them in folders, they get out of order within the folder, and the folders get all out of order, and the whole thing gets very messy.

Hey CpMan, I took your advice, and amazingly enough, the .vcproj file was really easy to edit by hand. It''s in a simple XML format. Woo hoo! Thanks.

I read on usenet a bit back that each project type can determine it''s sort order. So I guess logically this means the vproj file.
