View Full Version : Foobar2000 alpha sorting preferences - Can they be changed?

Anyone know how to change preferences in which foobar2000 sorts albums?

Unlike Windows 7 and Android, Foobar 2000 mobile seems to sort albums by letters first than numbers. I'd rather if it sorted by numbers first than letters like windows and android, as this is the way I have my library numbering sorted, and the different sorting system messes up how the library is viewed. Only other alternative is having to retag all 580 albums. :( which I prefer not to do.

PS: Below the albums are listed in a simple list view, but in foobar, they appear in a grid view with album covers.

Folders as they appear in Windows 7 and Android Folders:
