    I would love to sort by groups, but the View menu on my finder does not look like yours. Most of the options are not active and Groups is not there at all, even dimmed. I don’t see a preference to allow those options

    Rich: Which version of macOS are you using? Are you looking at a regular Finder window showing a regular folder, not a search result or space folder like “Recents?” What does your View menu show if it looks different?

    Version 10.15.6- In Finder, I press “View” and see the first 4 options but not darkened. The next 4 are darkened. The only other option is “Show View Options.”0

    I think I’ve solved the problem. To organize my desktop, I had to click on the hard drive image (folder) and then I had the shown options.
