In Windows File Explorer (FE) I can give a file or folder a name with a special character as the first character, and thereby make them move on top when sorting the files alphabetically. For instance, in FE the folder named
.baby will be sorted above both of the folders
car, while in Dired
.baby will be sorted between those two other folders, as if the character
. is not seen by Dired.
How can I make Dired sort on special characters?
