Windows 7: Icons arrangement in Windows 7 REALLY confuses me

Icons arrangement in Windows 7 REALLY confuses me

I'm trying to get the handle of all the new icons and photos arrangement in Windows 7, but I'm really confused by all the new options. All I wanna do is arrange all my icons in a chronological order, by who I downloaded or added to a certain folder first on the top of the folder, and the last one I downloaded or added in the bottom. Also, I've read that there is this little triangle on the top of the heading I click that tells which way a list is being sorted, in an ascending or descending order, and for the life of me I couldn't find it.

Can anyone please tell me how to arrange my icons in a simple, chronological order, or is there a similar new thing in Windows 7? And what is this little triangle?

TIA

Tried that - doesn't sort icons in a chronological order. In fact, it only confuses me even more.

If you click on the Date Modified column, you should see the triangle.
