	After contemplation, my reply is:

Thank you Siard.

It must be an idiosyncrasy of FVWM, that it doesn't show that little
spin control there?

I just tried it again in both programs to be certain. There is nothing
there, and no matter what I point and click on, there is nothing that
will change the order of the directories and files.

I have no idea what file manager they use.

I have tried  aptitude search file-manager and aptitude search
filemanager and apt policy filemanager and many others ways including
which filemanager and all different ways of speling.

But I can't find what file managers are installed to see which one
might be being used and need configuring. All those requests come up
empty.

I wonder how one discovers what file managers there are installed on
this system. I suppose have to name each one and see which are installed
that way.

No joy yet.

Thank you for your reply.
Charlie
