Vista Exployer Detailed View Dumb question?
Why can't I sort Music or Photos by date. When I select detailed view, I
see no dates. All I see is Artist, Album, etc. I tried classic view, but had
same results.

I'm trying to find latest (or newest) files.

Right-click in the column headers area & select 'More...'. You can select
several Date properties from there.

And one of the joys of VISTA for me is that the "column headings"
appear even if you are displaying List or Icons and you can sort by
them without changing to Details and enlarging the Window pane.

All sorts of fine tuning you can do if you click on a down arrow
alongside a column heading or on Organize.

The trick is to sort instead of group the icons. Use the down arrow at names
to sort the names and get rid of useless categories. you can do the same for
data. Actually quite powerful but confusing that grouping is the default
setting.

Not sure what you mean by this but in any case I'm dealing with
filenames normally and use full details -- but File Open defaults to
opening in List and being able to sort by date without going to Details
is a great improvement.
