MacOS Finder group by is called “Arrange by” and is under the “Gear” icon

Posted by jpluimers on 2022/02/18

I forgot how I had my MacOS Finder lists grouped by age and wanted to turn this off for one Finder window (normally grouping by age is very useful).

It turns out ‘group by’ is actually called ‘arrange by’ and is under the ‘gear’ icon.

Oh, it might just be the arrange by. Click the gear up at the top and chagne arrange by to NONE. See if that helps.

But there is a catch: besides the current window, it also affects any new windows you open (existing other open windows are not affected by the change unless you restart Finder).
