Windows 7: How can I find the oldest file?

How can I find the oldest file?

So basically, I got an embarassing folder and I want to find the oldest file in there. I had a bad experience with Seagate so all the "date created"s HAVE been reset to 10/27 but date modified will work fine. When you download something the date modified also is made to the time you downloaded it, right? Regardless, I wanna know how to find the oldest for date modified and if possible, date created. Thanks in advance.

1. Open that folder
2. Right click inside that folder and select View - Details.
3. You will see columns. Right click on any column name to add more custom columns. Click on desired column name to sort according to that column.
