    File Manager for Sorting Files by Creation Date Across Folders


    I am needing to sort all data files on my disk in chronological order.

    Does anybody know of a free app that will let me sort all my files in chrono order?

    This came up in my first search:

    Total Commander
    Total Commander - Wikipedia
    Total Commander - home
    Total Commander - TOTALCMD.NET

    It sounds like it will do the job during the trial period, but I thought 37.- Euros ca 47USD a bit steep.

    In searching "file manager for windows 10" I found this page. https://www.thewindowsclub.com/free-...ftware-windows
    with more hits following.

    Does anyone one know if the file managers on this list, or elsewhere, will help me?

    Thanks for any suggestions and recommendations,









    :)

    Sort files AND folders by "Date Modified" in File Explorer

    Hello,

    Is there a way to sort folders and individual files by "Date Modified" together? Right now, when I sort by "Date Modified," folders are automatically put at the bottom below files, even if they have been modified more recently than a file. When I'm quickly
    scanning a list, this is very distracting. How can I fix this?

    Sorting folders and files in file explorer Windows 10

    How can I sort files in the "directory" so that folders are listed alphabetically and below the files are in descending date order. "date modified. The fix for Windows 7 is not working for me. It can sort by descending date modified which puts the folders
    at the bottom of the list or by name which puts folders at top and files below all alphabetically.

    sort folders and files in explorer

    Hi Greg,

    You can filter the folders and files in File Explorer using the Sort by option. To best address your concern, we need you to answer the following questions:

    • What do you mean when you mentioned “files sorted by latest first”?
    • You mentioned that you were able to perform it before, which Windows version were you using that time?
    • Can you provide us a detailed description of what you would like to perform?

    In the meantime, you can try the following steps:

    • Go to File Explorer.
    • Click the Drive where the files and folders are saved.
    • Under Current view, click Sort by.
    • Select Name if you would like to sort it alphabetically. Choose
      Date modified or Date created if you wanted to sort it by date. Refer to the image below.

    Please take note that you can’t apply two filters at a time.

    Looking forward for your response.
