MacOS Mojave 10.14.2

Hi,
I am trying to use smart folders + the arranging/sorting/grouping functionality to achieve
1 - Folders at top, sorted by X (name, date, modified, or whatever)
2 - below folders the other contents grouped by kind and then sorted by X (name, date modified ,etc)

Screenshot attached of result+settings (based on reading other posts).
Is this possible? Or by utilizing the grouping by kind functionality do I eliminate my ability to put the folder at the top in some way?

If I value folders at top over grouping - then is the path to UN-do the grouping and enable smart sorting - which is then folders at top with files sorted (but mixed together) underneath?

Thanks,
-J

    Hi James,

    Thanks for reaching out! 

    First of all, please use Preferences > Browser, and drag Folders under "Smart Sort Order" to the very top. 
    What else would you like to adjust from here? 
    Please attach a screenshot what you get and tell us what you'd like to achieve so we avoid confusion. 

    Looking forward to your reply. 

    Best Regards,

    Attached is an image of my browser prefs.
    It does not change, or fix, the issue/question I had.

    Also - is there a reason why you close the posts/discussion before someone confirms they are resolved? This seems like it gives erroneous information online indicating that the solution proposed fixes something...

    Thanks,
