    just rightclick into the folder, the context menu opens and on the top stands ( in english ) "arrange by" then you can choose folder, i think that is what you mean with "normal view"  then in the context menu the second menu is called "view" their you can choose how big the icons should be and in the third "sort by" you can choose how you want it listed...

    if you mean that you want it sorted for the date modified but you don't want that grouping then just rightclick -> use the 4rth menu from the top "group by" -> choose "none" and just use the normal sort by modification or whatever you like how it should be sorted.

    nobus--Regrets that I have no answer for you, but I am curious whether you see both columns (right and left) at the same time.  I assume the screen shot comes from the Internet Explorer (not Windows Explorer) Explorer bar.  What version of IE?

    It sounds like you have turned on the "group by date modified" view.  If you don't have the toolbar visible for "File  Edit   View   Tools   Help", then you can make it temporarily visible by holding down the Alt key, then click on the View menu and go down to the Group by option on that menu and turn off the item for Date modified.
