Yes. Click the Start Time column header. That will toggle the sort order (to oldest or newest). It will keep that sort order when you exit the program, so it will be in the same order next time you run it. You want the triangle to point down:

Start Time newest first
This means descending sort, which means the newest fax will be first.

The same technique works for scans, but the field is called Date Scanned:

Date Scanned newest first
Once again, click the column header so the triangle is pointing down, which means the newest scan will be first. Regards, Joe

It stays as newest here. Try running it elevated, that is, right click on the shortcut and select Run as administrator.
