    Organizing Folders in Finder
    Is it possible to organize folders in Finder by months of the year instead of alphabetically?

    Specs:
    21" iMac 2.9Ghz 16GB RAM - 10.11.3, iPhone6s & iPad Air 2 - iOS 9.2.1, ATV 4Th Gen tvOS, ATV3
    If you are running Lion 10.7 or Mountain Lion 10.8 and maybe Snow Leopard 10.6 you can press ⌘J and then go and "Sort By' and then choose 'Date Added' and that will sort that Finder Window by Today, Previous 7 Days, Previous 30 Days and then Earlier, but not so much by Months and Years.
    There probably is a 3rd Party App that could do this, but i havnt heard of one . .
