    W7 HP 64 bit on Dell desktop. Is it possible to organize the items in the Downloads folder by date? There is a mention of that in the "Help" window on that screen, but it refers to a "library" pane which I don't see- I have cruised around the various options but if that is in there, I missed it...

    Not sure if this is the same as Win7, but on Win10 it's very easy.
    You can try this...........

    Click on the Date Modified tab.

    and it will automatically change the modified date to an ascending date order.
    Clicking on the Date Modified tab again will change it to a date descending order.

    Have just tried this on my Win7 system..... yes it works the same.

    It'll work on any folder, not just the Download folder.
