Chapter 16. Viewing and Finding Files > Viewing and Sorting Files

Viewing and Sorting Files

It is pretty common to save a file and then not be able to find it again. Either you didn't save it to the location you thought, or you cannot remember in which folder you saved it. Sometimes, you don't remember the exact filename. One way to find files is to change how they are displayed in the folder window. You can view the contents of a window in a variety of ways. You can also sort the contents so that files are listed in alphabetical order, by date, or by type. As another option, you can group similar files together (by name, type, and so on). All these viewing and sorting options are covered in this section.

Changing the View

You have several choices for how the contents of a window are viewed—thumbnails, tiles, icons, lists, and details. Changing the view can help you better locate the item you want. Each view has its advantages. For instance, if you want to see more of a window's contents at one time, you can change the view to List. Figure 16.1 shows files in List view.
