Do you remember how in Windows XP you can move icons wherever you want even if you have a "sort by" option in the folder? I can't do this on Windows 7 everytime I try to drag an icon it just comes back to the original place.

is there anything I can do about this?

I know that, but it only works on Desktop, how can I do it in folders?

You can't, unless there is fix for it in SP1.

There was a regedit hack for it or something.

There are several PowerTool window tweakers out there for Vista, so I imagine there are quite a few now for Se7en.

I haven't messed with Se7en a whole lot, but I know that in Vista you could set it so that each folder would remember the location of all icons visually when opened. I would assume that this particular option exists in the Folder Options menu when you explore a folder in Se7en, should be somewhere under the address bar at the top, depending on your windows theme/skin.

This is of course only aesthetic.
