Windows 7: Explorer - Making new files appear at the end of the list (like XP)?

Explorer - Making new files appear at the end of the list (like XP)?

In Windows XP, copied files appeared at the end of the window, so that just scrolling to the bottom (e.g. by pressing the End button) made it very simple to locate them. In Windows 7 the new files (and folders) are sorted immediately, which means that in a folder with lots of files I have to go hunting for the new stuff. Is there any way to revert to the Windows XP behavior?

Thanks!
Oren

I'm not sur if this is what you are asking, but in explorer you can go to say my documents and in the upper left corner there are options of how to arrange folders. By, name, size, date modified ect.

although im not sure if the files will automatically go to the end of the list as you want ,but worth a try.

I used to really like that feature too, and even had it in Vista for a while, until one update or another apparently stopped it from happening. I don't think you can have it any longer, but one suggestion as a work around might be to temporarily give the saved files names starting with the letter 'z' --- that way they'll always be at the end of your list, and you can at least find them easily and rename them when you're ready.

I couldn't find such a customization in Classic Shell, but it did solve another Windows 7 Explorer issue. Thanks!

Making explorer background transparent?
Is it possible to make the windows explorer background transparent? Is the Window Blinds useful? Chaos Crystal is good, but everything must be set manually, and it makes the objects in a window transparent as well as the background, which is not good.
