    I notice that you always show icon view. I use Column View and I have always drug the Documents Icon from the top of the Documents folder to put it in my dock. Only one step instead of two. I also Control Click and choose Name, Folder and List. I also use my Dock on the Left as all monitors are wide.

    Great stuff again Gary! Thanks. Can I create the “Recent Documents” type of Smart Folder searching my iCloud Drive?

    Thanks, Gary Great Stuff…
    I can sort the folder by clicking on “Control” but can I sort any subfolders? I don’t seem to be able to.
    Please advise.

    Brian: In List view in a Dock Stack? The sort option should apply to the subfolders as well.
