sorting files

In Vista I could sort files by date, type etc...
How can I do that on the Windows 7 system?
Thank you
John

up on the top, where it says: Name, Date Modified,Type, Size.....if you just click on Date Modified it will sort it by date, ascending or descending...which ever you prefer.

I didn't see those items up top.
I then changed how I see the files to detail and then I found the items at the top.
Now I can sort by date and or size.
Thank you.
