To change the way items are sorted, click on any of the headers at the top of the center column. For example, if you click on “Title,” all of your items will be sorted alphabetically by title. Clicking a header multiple times toggles between ascending and descending order (the header will show upward and downward arrows, respectively).
You can change which properties are shown in the center column by clicking the sort icon , found to the right of the column headers. Checking properties in the drop down menu adds them to the center column, and unchecking removes them. You can include a secondary sort by clicking the sort icon , found to the right of the column headers, and choosing “Secondary Sort.”
