Hi Friend,

Go to the Drive where your downloaded files are then  click ALT Key so you will see File menu will come up at the top.  Then select View Option in that and Select the Details.  You will get the files downloaded Date and Time and File size and everything you need.

Please let me known if you have any problem in finding the above option.

Thanks,
P. Praveen Raj

I went to Details view under the lift on top right hand corner. I see three columns of all files and folders. I do not see the time stamp. I want to see the time stamp and sort to see latest downloaded files, folders on top of the list preferably everything showing in one column to avoid confusion. Please advise

open explorer>Documents
in the right hand panel, right-click on the name bar
now you can select date of creation, or in the bottom : More, to choose from more options

I do not see 'date created or date modified' more etc. My options seems different when I right click on the name bar. Please advise on how to see Date modified, Date created etc options

That is because your on the drive menu and not in a folder. Try doing it within a actual folder.

you did not do what i suggested :  open explorer>Documents   ( this means the folder - not the library)
right-clicking opens the context menu -this shows the available options for that item; so it can change for every device.

@Russell - how do you take that screenshot?  i can make normal ones, but not from context menu, since they disappear if you click

@Nobus, that one I took using the old "print scrn" right after I right click. It was honestly quicker then pulling out one of the snapshot tools.
