How To Unlock Sorting In Finder Of OS X Lion

Posted Oct 22, 2012

I have been using Lion for a while and a couple of buddies pointed out that one of the features that they do not like is how Finder sorting gets locked up.  This way it is more of a process to sort things like Name Date Last Open, Date Modified, Size, etc.  Here is how you fix that.  Click on the gear icon on Finder, put the mouse over “Arrange By” and then select “None.”  This will make Finder go back to the way that you prefer where you can sort files in one click.
