    Does anyone know if there is a way to sort alphabetically or reversed alphabetically in Icon View in Finder - I only seem to get it to work in List view by clicking Name once or twice, and even when I then switch back to Icon View the order I made is lost (Arrange by is set to: None).

    I just tried, clicking on the gearwheel icon with a drop down and selecting either "clean up by" or "arrange by" would seem to do the trick?

    It only seems to work one way though, lowest to highest. eg you cant reverse the alphabetical order by doing it twice, AFAICS.
