See attached.

Note that if you click on A2, A3,A4 or A5 the sheet sorts ASCENDINGLY left to right.

I need to toggle this from Ascends to Descends (and vice versa).

See my VBA - How do I toggle?

update the code to

Option Explicit

Public bsort As Boolean
Public lastrow As Integer

Private Sub Worksheet_BeforedoubleClick(ByVal Target As Range, Cancel As Boolean)
    Dim sortzone As Range, thisSheet As Worksheet
    If Target.Column = 1 And Target.Row > 1 Then
        Set thisSheet = ActiveWorkbook.ActiveSheet
        Set sortzone = thisSheet.Range("A1").CurrentRegion.Offset(0, 1)
        Set sortzone = sortzone.Resize(, sortzone.Columns.Count - 1)
        
        thisSheet.sort.SortFields.Clear
        If lastrow = Target.Row Then
            bsort = Not bsort
        Else
            lastrow = Target.Row
            bsort = True
        End If
        If bsort = True Then
            thisSheet.sort.SortFields.Add Key:=Target.Offset(0, 1).Resize(, sortzone.Columns.Count), _
                SortOn:=xlSortOnValues, Order:=xlAscending, DataOption:=xlSortNormal
        Else
            thisSheet.sort.SortFields.Add Key:=Target.Offset(0, 1).Resize(, sortzone.Columns.Count), _
                SortOn:=xlSortOnValues, Order:=xlDescending, DataOption:=xlSortNormal
        End If
        With thisSheet.sort
            .SetRange sortzone
            .Header = xlNo
            .MatchCase = False
            .Orientation = xlLeftToRight
            .SortMethod = xlPinYin
            .Apply
        End With
        Cancel = True
    End If
    Range("A1").Select
End Sub
