Hi, I'm Mr.med. Welcome to JustAnswer. I'm reviewing your question now, and will post back with your reply ASAP.

Would you like me to set up a remote session, which will allow me to connect directly to your screen and assist you quickly with this issue?

Can you advise what software would help?

This query is pretty urgent.I would like to look at another expert if you’re unable to advise other than remote support

You don't need to use a software to do this, you can just use the group by option :

open a folder that contains your files, Click/tap on the View tab or (Alt+V). then select Group by type

Let me know the results
