folder views RRS feed

  • Question

  • in windows xp,

    I have a folder which contains many files and folders. If i go to view and select tiles for the icons and under 'arrange icons by' i select show in groups, the files and folders are organized alphabetically under headings. But if I subsequently go to view and select 'choose details' and check categories as a detail and change 'arrange icons by' to arrange them by category, all the files and folders are grouped under 'Unspecified'. But suppose I wanted to categorize those files and folders to be grouped under categories like "Devices With Removable Storage" or "Hard Disk Drives" like My Computer; how do I change/assign a file/folder a category? 

    Any solutions available for similar feats in Windows Vista would be appreciated also.
