    Hello everyone,
    ive made a big mistake... i accidentaly removed the downloads folder from the dock... i re-inserted it via dragging the folder from user library... but the behavior isnt the same... u see, my older download folder, the item in display was the last downloaded... does anyone know if its possible or how to enable the "display last downloaded" behavior??? tks alot!!!

    Right click on the Downloads folder icon in the Dock and select "Sort by: Date added" or whatever seems to your liking.
    You might also try different "Display as" and "View content as" settings.

    Btw, what you call "user library" is the so-called "Home folder" or "Home directory".
