Hello, this is my first post on Mac forums, I am brand new so I need a wee bit of help. Just recently, my files in Word for Mac were in alphabetical order, now they are lined up by date. Can anyone tell me how to revert back to the old way, the alphabetical way. Thank you so much.
QUOTE Thanks

You used to be able to click on the bars at the top. if i remember correctly they are name, date (or modified) and size..there might be another one but not sure..

click on these and they should sort for you.

rather like iTunes, sorting by artist or album etc..

good luck

Hello and thank you for the reply. Fantastic, I clicked on "Name" at the top left of the open My Documents page, the File Names went from date to Alphabetical. Thank you so much. You have made my day.
