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?

The options available on a right click are; Extra Large Icons, Large Icons, Medium Icons, Small Icons, List, Details, Tiles and Context. Where do I find view/group name?

What do you mean by Downloads? Do you mean the Download folder under your account in Users or the Download window you get when you download a file in IE?

I'm talking about the download folder in my user folder.

Click on Organize then Layout then Menu Bar. That will give you a View tab. Then you can Sort by ....

Remove Menu bar when done as it only takes up space. You can always get it back if needed.

Option one of this tutorial should help with that,

File and Folder Arrangement - Group by - Sort by - Arrange by
