Thank you for your quick answer.

Re what's on notebook master, my files/folder appear sorted by type then 
alphabetically (case insensitive), but I don't know how to sort them by 
last modified date (it does not show) - where can it be configured ? - 
sorry if the answer is obvious.

Ok clear for the rest.

Thx
