Windows 7: sort start menu download menu by date not name

sort start menu download menu by date not name

The win 7 start menu download folder item on the right sorts by name. This is very annoying. I cannot find a download unless I know its name. If by date I just look up a recent download at top of list.

How do I change behavior so downloads in start menu (right column) sorts by date?

NB. I changed the folder properties in explorer so the download folder sorts by date. It does there no problem. But not in the start menu.

What a worthless feature to sort by name when it is downloads. I am checking for a registry work around, but it is a slow bushiness for me.
