files list display order?

Postby markeh » Mon Aug 28, 2017 8:08 pm

The "files list" window (of downloaded files) seems to sort by the upload date of the file being downloaded. Is there a way to sort so that the listing is in the order of the date that I downloaded it?? So most recent download at the top or bottom??

thnx,

It always feeds new files to the top of the list so, I'm not sure exactly what you're seeing. You can re-sort after the fact by clicking on the column headers.

Well I'm willing to own up to operator error, having clicked the date header.

How can I get back to a re-sort with latest on top (or bottom)??

tnx,

New files will still go to the top not matter what sort order you clicked in.

Hi - this has been a problem in the past. I too just did a sort based on date, and indeed it DID sort the files based on their upload date as opposed to the date I downloaded them.
Any settings I can change in options, etc. so that the sort order is based on when I download files?
Thanks

Yup - how recently I downloaded the file is more use (at least to me) than when it was first uploaded.
