If one wants to sort in the file browser it is necessary to right mouse click in windows. Then you can sort e.g. by name. If you do that a second time it sorts the other way. Not very helpful. Too many clicks, too many steps. Typical for microsoft freak-thinking-mentality.

I would love to see in Classic Shell a button A-Z and maybe Z-A so that with JUST ONE CLICK files are sorted from A to Z.

PS.: Classic Shell saved my (Computer) life when windows 8 (8.1 and 10) came. Their policy (especially at start (version 8)) was a shock. Thanks a lot!!!!

There are 2 easy ways to sort without using right click with the help of Classic Shell.

First method (Sort headers):

Open Classic Explorer Settings and check the option "Show sort headers in all views" on the File Pane tab. Close and reopen the Explorer window. Then, you will get property headers in any view, not just Details view. You can add any property to sort by right clicking the sort headers -> clicking More... Click once on any header to sort in one order, click again to reverse the order.

Second method (Toolbar button):

Another way is to add a sort by button to the Explorer toolbar. Open Classic Explorer Settings and go to the Toolbar Buttons tab. Add the command called "Sort By" by dragging it from the right column to the left on the "Toolbar Buttons" tab in Classic Explorer settings. Then in the left column, double click the "Sort By" command you added and modify the "Command" field as follows:

sortby <property> where <property> should be replaced by the code of whatever property you wish to sort by. To sort by date modified, the command should be:

sortby {B725F130-47EF-101A-A5F1-02608C9EEBAC}, 14

Use '-' in front of the property to sort first in descending order. You can change ascending order to descending and vice versa by sorting by the same property again. The following is the list of property codes:

All file types:

Date Modified {B725F130-47EF-101A-A5F1-02608C9EEBAC}, 14
