Windows 7: Download Folder has does not display downloads in order/by date

Download Folder has does not display downloads in order/by date

For a long time, if I downloaded a folder from Google chrome, it would go to the downloads folder in Microsoft explorer with the latest downloaded file on top. I'm not sure how I changed it, but somehow the download folder now has the looks of the music library with categories in the details view of "name","contributing artist", "title", "album". I can sort them by name alphabetically, but not by date downloaded. If I don't remember the name of the download, I'll have to search for it in this huge folder of lots of different downloads, and if it has a weird name as some downloads do, it will be difficult. Is there a way to go back to getting the downloads folder like a documents folder (or however it was) and be able to arrange them by date downloaded?

Right click and choose sort by date.

You should start organizing.

Downloads in alphabetical order
I had a recent change that occurred to my listing of downloads. The order is now numerical by date and not alphabetic as I prefer. I tried changing thru the options but to no avail. How can I make it alphabetic with the folders listed first?

Won't automatically add 'Date modified' to downloads
Hi! First off, I kinda suck with computers, so I'm sorry if I make this more difficult than it should be. Also, this is kind of a silly question. When I used to download images, my computer would automatically add a 'date modified' thingy to it, so that I could sort through them easily by setting...
