I'm trying to arrange my icons by the date modified, but that option isn't there, I tried changing the type of folder it is but it didn't work. Any ideas?

    What OS?

    In Windows XP in the folder, go to the View menu, and make sure it's set to Details view. Then again in the View menu go to Choose Details and make sure the Date Modified option is checked so that it shows up.

    Even in the Choose Details list under View?

    Yeah, but I made a new folder, and the option is there, I think the folder is optimized for audio files, I tried changing it to something else but i still get the same options.

    hmm... weird...

    You could try creating a new folder, moving the contents of the original folder over to the new one, then deleting the old folder and renaming the new one to the old name.

    Not sure why the optimized for audio files would eliminate the date modified option.

    This is really pissing me off, as soon as I copied the files to the new folder, the options to arrange them were the same as the old one, and there was no date modified.

    In detail view, right-click on the column headers (where you would normally click to change the sorting order) and from the menu that pops up, find Date Modified and check it. You should now have that column.

    If that doesn't work, there's something wrong with your Windows install...
