Try viewing a REAL folder on your C drive and it will sort as expected. Those "folders" like Quick Access do not sort like a real drive location. It's something that we saw in Windows Vista and 7. Maybe even XP.

Although some people hate it, I've learned to like the "Quick Access" feature of Win 10. Recently it has shown strange behavior, however. Instead of listing my "frequent folders" in a list within a pane at the top of the window and "recent files" in a pane at the bottom at the bottom of the window (in a separate pane), both "frequent folders" and "recent files" show up on the same detail list (within a single pane), always sorted by name.
That is, the entries are all sorted by name instead of (recent) date, as I would like. (I want the most recent files to be at the top of the list… just like Quick Access was “out of the box”.
Just for the record, I’ve tried “Restore defaults” on the Quick Access folder… to no avail.
I’ll paste a couple of screenshots now and will follow later with a screenshot of operating system, model number, and any other specs afterwards.
Here (in a screenshot I pulled from the web) is how Quick access should look:
Instead, this is how it DOES look:
Lastly, here is my system information for reference:
I don't recall doing anything to my system recently... not even installing any new software. I'm going crazy trying to get Quick access to look normal again.
Update: When I try to add images to my post, they seem to get lost (at least when I click "preview post"). I'll go ahead and make the post, hoping the images will show up there. If not, I'll try inserting the images again.
