Click on different columns to sort in 10.8 Finder?

My apologies if this has been addressed heavily, but I could not find a reference via forum search.

I haven't personally run a Mac with 10.8 yet, but I was remotely connected to my mom's 10.8 machine today helping with some Adobe stuff. I noticed that with Finder open, and the "list view" chosen (2nd icon of the 4 views) I wasn't able to click on the different column headers to switch "arrange by" methods. In 10.6 I can click on "Name" or "Date" or "File Size" and so on to switch the arrangement preference. It's obviously quite convenient for rogue files. In 10.8 it seems that I have to either know the keyboard shortcut or go into the menu under "arrange by."

Was this feature stripped out of 10.8 or is there a preference I must change? I could not find anything by searching through view options for Finder nor the specific Finder window I had open.

This works - as it has been always - without any problem on my Mac with OS X 10.8. I can only assume that it did not work in your case because something was funny with your remote control session - I experience sometimes strange things in remote control sessions, too, where mouse clicks just don't do what they are supposed to do.

Thanks for your input. I had her attempt clicking on the columns after it clearly wasn't working for me, but alas it didn't work for her either. I will have her test it without me connected.

I'm just relieved that this feature wasn't removed. Between all of the iOS modeled changes and the new styling of Finder's columns I feared the worse
