By default, items in the Contents pane are sorted by the Name column in ascending order. Clicking on a column heading sorts the items by that property. Items can be sorted in ascending or descending order. When a column heading is clicked, a triangle appears in the column label indicating the direction of the sort. A triangle pointing up means that the items are sorted in ascending order and a triangle pointing down means that the items are sorted in descending order. Each time you click the column heading, you reverse the sort order.
Note: You can also set the sort order by editing the view definition.
If the selected folder also contains subfolders, they will appear at the top of the view, in the selected sort order.
Your last sort is saved as the default sort for the active view until you change the sort. You can also split the work area with a horizontal or vertical layout and apply a different view and sort to each work area. For example, you may want to compare documents in the same folder or different folders using two different sorts. The sort in a split layout is also preserved and the documents appear in that sort the next time a split layout opens.
