Auto Arrange Files, Folders For Display In Finder In Mac OS X

In mac os x one of the most annoying thing I have seen is that when ever you open any folder on mac os, it does not display files in a sorted way, one such example is the downloads folder in which all the files you download from internet gets stored.

In order to solve this problem temporarily you can just open that folder, and then right click in empty area and then select arrange by – modified date or select any other criteria as shown in the image below.
