Hello All!

I am using Windows XP sp2.

Is it me or is the "My Recent Documents" NOT sorted by DATE!?

Seems kinda odd.

Anyway, can the order of "My Recent Documents" be changed to sort by DATE instead on name?

I have seen this:
... but I want to know if the same thing can be accomplished by, perhaps a registry tweak?

Yes I did search the Registry for "My Recent Documents" but turned up with nothing.
