Lets sort numbers like this!
-Greetings from my file manager!

    Thats because file names are strings not numbers

    That's also why love CS teachers that assign homework with 01, 02, etc and despise those who dont.

    Excel has “sort anything that looks like a number as a number” option for this reason.

    @bkwilliams yea but if I recall, and unless it's gotten better, it can't tell a number in the middle of a word.

    1a
    2a
    10a

    works fine. but:

    ab1
    ab10
    ab2

    the numbers arent at the start, therefore it's a string. maybe Excel has fixed this (please correct me if they have) but a lot of other software shows this inconsistency.
