Default open dialog box in Word has folders in reverse alphabetical order


I can't figure out how to change the dialog box in File Open to show folders before files and in alphabetical order. At present, files show first and then folders, both in reverse alphabetical order.

If you mean the Explorer-like window when you click Browse. The sort order can be reversed by clicking the 'Name' title at the top of the name column.

Default Solved it, but

Thanks for the prompt reply. You solved my problem but I found that you have to have the window in Detail format to get the name column. I kept trying to find a way to change the order while I had the window in List format. Hopefully, all this will help anyone else as dumb as I am.
