W7: How to sort desktop icons by DATE CREATED
This is a feature I miss tremendously from XP. The closest thing I can do is sort by date modified, and desktop is where I put a lot of my new files. They go all over the place. And if I copy an older file to desktop, they go right in the middle of my icons. And yes, I need a lot of icons on my desktop.
tl;dr: How to sort icons on desktop by Date Created?
I'm not sure how to sort them, but if your goal is to keep your desktop organized, you might want to check out a free program called Fences by Stardock. I also have a large amount of icons, and I find the program really helpful.
You can check it out here.
I don't want to come off sounding like a #@$$, but I recommend changing your procedure by putting your 'new files' in a separate folder, not on your desktop.
looks interesting, wonder if that will play nice with d-color...
unfortunately it doesn't play nice at all. looked like it would have really been nice.
Forgive me if I'm sounding obvious with this... When you a create a new file on your desktop isn't the new file always tacked on at the very end of the list? Leave it as is?
Disable auto arrange, and Windows will not automatically sort your desktop items. Then sort them how you see fit.
Navigate to your User\Desktop folder.
Right click > Sort By > More
Check off Date Created > OK
Right click > Sort By > Date Created.
That what you want?
