When I am uploading file(s) in Safari using file picker, I have 3 view options (icons, list, columns). I cannot figure out how to sort files by date (e.g. date modified) when I am in columns view. Please refer to the screenshots below for the clarification (p.s. I am referring to sorting, not grouping):

Icons view

List view

Column view


The 'Sort by' drop menu is at the top of your file-picker - using a crop of your own pic as example...

you get these choices...

  • When I choose Date options, it doesn't sort but actually groups the files. I am looking to sort files by Date options, not group them – Alexander K. Mar 11 '18 at 18:57
  • Then don't use column view. – Tetsujin Mar 11 '18 at 18:58
  • That doesn't answer my question. – Alexander K. Mar 11 '18 at 19:00
  • Then the answer to your question is "it can't be done". – Tetsujin Mar 11 '18 at 19:02
