    I desperately need to sort my files downloaded using DownThemAll by the date the file was added to the directory. Date created could have been months or years in the past. Date saved could have been months or years in the past. Is there a way to sort the files by the date the file was added to the directory. I need to download to the same general directory in order to avoid dups.

    Thank you in advance for your reply.

    Howdee to you too.
    If it's in Windows explorer, just change the view to detail and press the date column to sort the either ascending or descending,
    In Windows 7 you can show more columns by right clicking the top bar just check there, there are quite a few date options.
    Hope you can use this :)

    Thank you. I found after I posted the request DownThemAll has a special feature that will post the date in a file name as the file is added to a directory. Thank you again. I will mark the thread solved.
