Change the name of the "File Folder" group in Explorer Detailed Vi
I'm setting up Vista's Explorer to browse files in Details View with Grouping
by Type. My problem is that in that mode File Folders are not the top items
to appear instead they appear at position "F" (so for example the "7z
Archive" and "Adobe Reader Document" Groups comes before the "File Folder"
group because of their precedence in the alphabet).

I used to overcome this issue in XP by altering the
HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Directory default key from "File Folder" to something like
"[ File Folder ]". This way Explorer displayed the folders under the [ File
Folder ] Group so folders always displayed on top of Explorer's file list
(because "[" character precedes all alphanumeric chars).

However in Vista things have changed apparently and now the
HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Directory key doesn't seem to help in renaming the "File
Folder" Group.

Anybody has idea on how to change this in Vista?
