View Full Version : 'Arrange icon' 'By date'....???

Hello whoever reads this. I would like to ask you some questions regarding the order in which icon are arranged. I usually have Windows folders 'Sort icon' set to 'By date', in my other system running Windows 98 the icons on the top left are the latest ones and in gradual order the icons are arranged from latest to oldest. However, on my current system using WinME I discovered that 'Sort icon' 'By date' means that the oldest files are on the top left and latest are on the bottom right! Is there anyway I can configure my WinME system to arrange the icons like they do on my Win98 system? Thank you.

Try setting the view to details, then click the title of the Modified column.

This will swap the order they are sorted in.

If you want it sorted in another view, it should keep this order when you switch to one of the icon views. Hopefully.
