Windows 7 Shortcut Key for Window View->Sort By->Date Modified

In Windows 7, to sort the contents of a window by "Name" you perform the following keyboard shortcut:
(Open a window first)

ALT-V
O
N

To sort by "Size" you select

ALT-V
O
S

However, there is no keyboard shortcut to sort by *Date Modified*, i.e.
ALT-V
O
(try pressing any keyboard character here and *nothing* works)

Microsoft in its infinite wisdom has, once again, made it very difficult on keyboard shortcut users, forcing them to use the mouse.

Does anyone know how to do this via keyboard shortcuts?

Thanks in advance!
