Previously, using Windows, I developed a large file structure. Now that I've changed to Linux (Elementary OS), I'm experiencing a discrepancy in sorting capability. To wit:
When I look at my file structure in LibreOffice (or Windows), exclamation points sort ahead of alphanumeric characters. But when I look at the file structure using the Files application, the exclamation points are ignored by the system.
I don't want to go through all my files and delete the exclamation points, because there are thousands of them and it would be a huge nuisance.
How can I make my files sort the same way, with exclamation points coming before letters and numbers?
