Windows 7: Pictures Library arrange by month looks weird

Pictures Library arrange by month looks weird

I used a software and extended my disk C the other day and apparently some settings are set back to default or somehow changed. It's been so long since my computer had any problems so I can't remember how to customize everything anymore...
So I use to have the pictures library to be arranged by month and I remember that the folders are grouped by year also. Like at the top it shows the year and then the pictures are arranged by month. Now it's set to "arrange by month" too but the years are not shown. Does anyone know how I can get the old look back? Thanks!

Hello Rose,

I think this may get you back there. If not, then play with the different settings to see if another may be it.

OR
-day.jpg
Hope this helps,

Thanks Shawn! I can get my library to look like the screenshots you posted. But I remember that the month view was grouped by year also, kinda like having the separating lines in the second screenshot. I open the pictures library many times a day and today when I opened it it looked really weird. But I did some research online and the official microsoft website shows it as your first screenshots too. So maybe I remembered wrong? Just don't know what's different...

Pictures Library Arrange By Date gives results by Day and by Month
I'm using the 'Arrange By' selection box in the Pictures Library. When I use the 'Arrange By' selection to arrange my pictures by date (in descending order) I get about 2 years of pictures grouped by day and the remainder by month.

Library - display order, arrange/sort by, default save location
I have found that if you arrange the order of the libraries (in my case 3 each for documents, pictures, video, music) via move up/down (right-click when pulling up LOCATIONS link), it changes the way it shows in the left-hand library "tree" > view. But, it seems that you need to sort by library...
