Order of files after sorting by names

I transferred a few hundred files with the name 1.xxxx  2.xxxx  3.xxxx ..., but after sorting them by names, the order of files became 1.xxxx 10.xxxx 11.xxxx .... then 2.xxxx 20.xxxx 21.xxxx.

 

Is there a way that can sort the file using the normal numerical order like 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11...?

 

Thank you!

Re: Order of files after sorting by names

rename the files to 01.xxx 02.xxx etc and it should fix the issue. If you have more then 10 you may need to name them 001.xxx, 002.xxx etc.
