Win Media Player arrange album by year?

Hi, in my XP install WMP (10 i believe) arranged albums by release date under the artist name but WMP in Windows 7 arranges albums alphabetically and i cant find a way to change it. Its no real biggie, it just annoys me that i cant find a way to change it.

Any help or advise will be greatly appreciated.

Thanks,

Dave.

In the upper right corner there is an icon for 'view options' next to the search bar, click the small arrow there and click on details, then you can sort by year..if you do not see the 'release year' column, add it by right clicking on the ribbon with tile, length, rating, etc...

Thanks for the reply, i should have mentioned i was using the expanded title layout (shows album art). found it by; right clicking column heading, choose columns, tick 'include release date in default sort order' (circled in red).[IMG]file:///C:/Users/Dave/AppData/Local/Temp/moz-screenshot.png[/IMG]
