I am using Mac OSX 10.8 Mountain Lion and one of the finder features that really annoys me is that when i try to sort files by 'Date Created' in icon view it separates them into sections such as 'Yesterday', 'Previous 7 Days' etc. and uses a cover flow like effect to browse through them. These sections mean that to browse i have to scroll along each section then move down to the next and scroll along that one.

Is there any way to stop finder from using this feature?

Thanks in advance, Ben.

  1. Right click in the folder you have the problem.
  2. Select Arrange by > None.
  3. Right click again and select Clean up by > Date Created.
  • Thank you! Will this automatically sort the files as i add more?
