Windows 7: How to sort images by date added to a folder

How to sort images by date added to a folder

I created a folder on my desktop and add images of books I have sold almost daily. With Windows XP, the images would stay in order as I added them, but with Windows 7 they are always in order of the image name.
I have tried using the different sort by date options, but they are always sorted by the image name (which is a 5 digit number). How can I sort them by the date I add them to the folder?
Thanks,
Fritz

Hello Fritz, and welcome to Seven Forums.

I would think that adding the column "Date last saved", then having the folder set to be sorted by it would do the trick.

Hope this helps,
Shawn

Shawn,
Thanks for the help. I did get it to work better using the "Last Accessed" option when I use Copy and Paste. What I need to use is "Cut and Paste", but this method always puts the image in the image name order instead of the "Last Accessed" order.

What folder template are you using in that folder? I don't have a "Last Accessed" column that can be added to sort by.


By default, the last access timestamp is disabled in Windows. You might see if enabling it using the tutorial below may help it sort by "Last Accessed" better.
