    Hey Dave, I think you can. I have my download folder set to last download listed first. Change the View to "Details", then sort by Date Modified. Unless you're referring to something completely different and I'm barking up the wrong tree. (Which is a good probability )

    It works the same way in Win7 and Win10. I set my folders to Detail view. Clicking Date twice toggles from First In to Last In at the top. Click any of the headers and you sort based on that header, name, File type, Size, Date, etc.

    One thing that I do on both is set my Desktop to Classic View. It gets rid of the tile appearance and makes it look like XP/2000 with only minor differences like the task bar. I never liked the tablet view.

    I'm no expert Graphics Designer, but I know more than a few ex-Photoshop and Illustrator drivers. GIMP (the Linux app) is everything to them, now. Just like music apps, there are free plugs and paid plugs. But everything can be customized. Menus. Layouts. Etc. And no licensing or unstable versions. If you check out GIMP they will, to a user, ask "what do you want to DO?"

    All my Windows apps are several years old. I backed out of Word/Excel at 2016 and went back a version or two (2009?) but still miss 2003.

    Pro Tools isn't going Linux anytime soon, I don't think. But music-wise, I think the best is yet to come in the Linux world and when we apply that same question to recording/producing -- "what do you want to DO?" -- Microsoft is gonna soon be a distant memory in some studio. Just my worthless prediction.

    I cant see any point to PT. it is only popular because they used the word PRO and is also okay. There are certainly other programs that are cheaper and arguably better and certainly as good as PT.

    That's fine as long as you're backed up and won't lose any material if your computer fails. And it will......sooner or later.

    To be fair, so will a brand new one running W10.

    Which, BTW, a "computer" doesn't fail. That's what the insulated user thinks.
    Disc drives will fail.
    RAM can fail.
    Motherboards fail.
    Power supplies fail.
    Any and all of these can fail (especially the hard drives) and can be replaced in minutes and the computer is up and running again. No differently than if your car has an alternator that fails: it's far from a total loss.

    There are lots and lots of backup schemes and they all work. My favorite is simply a cold drive, but to each his own. And that's just good practice for anyone on any system of any age.

    An old saying in computer circles, "There are two types of hard drives, those that have crashed, and those that are going to crash."

    Why go at all? win 10 is a POS and worse for audio.
    win 10 is a social media toy that microcrap controls and makes it too hard for us to do what we want to do or need to do.

    I still use XPprosp3.

    And i still use win 98se.

    to be fair i do have a win8 i use rarely.
    and a win10 that is going to become linux real soon now.

    win 10 will fail just as much as his old win7 box.

    but win 10 will cause you so many other problems that he does not have with 7 or has already fixed.
