Filesystem sorting

Top  Previous  Next


You can rearrange the order in which the items are displayed in any of the Explorer Views by using the Sort By button or selecting File > Sort By.  A click on the column header in the detailsview has the same effect. Clicking twice will toggle between ascending (a..z) and descending (z..a) order.


Available sort orders:


Name column (alphabetically). If you performed Custom Sorting in the current directory, then this is the sort order that will reflect your sorting.


Size column


Type column (alphabetically)


Modified column


Set Display Standard Filedate, to show modification time of file or directory (Windows standard)


Set Display Modification Date, to show modification time of original files. Choose this sortorder, if you are viewing images inside catalogs. The setting corresponds to the one above, if your current directory contains only original images.


Set Display Creation Date, to show timestamp of photo from EXIF record, if available, otherwise file creation time of original file. This sort order is a good starting point to Initialize Custom Sorting


Description column (alphabetically). This column is usually taken from the CodedColor database, so you will not find it in the Windows Explorer.
