Any way to make this normal? Currently my all files looks like this.

I want it to look like the following picture, just in date added to view my most recent files. It seems that whenever I do it Lion adds it in a view that lets me see much less files and gives me unneeded dates.

Bump. Why is it nobody ever replies to questions on here anymore? This used to be a much busier community.

In the first window if you 'Show View Options' (Right Click or Control Click) you should be able to specify that you want to arrange by NONE and sort by DATE ADDED e.g.

Look at the time your asking this question. They is currently only 26 members viewing this sub-forum, and I didn't know the answer until just now.

Thank you,

I had tried this before and the second "Sort By" option was greyed out and wouldn't let me select it, until just now.

Date added is extremely buggy and it only works with files that were added after you installed Lion. Every file that was added while on Snow Leopard just ends up in the "Earlier" category in alphabetical order, so this "feature" is utterly pointless until you use it for a few months.
