    If you have enabled content types in your list or library, you will not be able to utilize a previous technique. Once you enable Content Types, you must change the order of columns in a SharePoint list or library using content type settings.

    To change column order for every content type:

    1. Navigate to the list or library settings and choose the content type whose columns you want to change Changeordercolumnslistlibrary7
    2. On the Content Type screen, click Column order Changeordercolumnslistlibrary9
    3. Change the order of columns as necessary and click OK
