    As ever knows, there is an option to arrange files by name, date modified, date created, size, etc. But how can I reverse the arrangement?

    For example, If arrange by "Date Created" it will arrange by latest first, but I want the lastest last. How can I do this?

    sorry for the noob question.

    in the Finder window click the sort bar at the top again and the content will reverse sorting. akin to Nermal's answer but easier to do.

    I know i could do that in list view, but what im really looking for is to reverse arrangement of files in icon view.

    yeah you cant in icon view. if you're looking for that functionality just use list view for that folder. to make that folder always open in list view enable "Always open in list view" in view options.
