Context menu lacks Sort by Date / Time Deleted [when in Recycle Bin]

#1 Post by Forez » 13.08.2022, 17:44

When a user right clicks on an empty space in main window of Panel then a context menu appears. As a second entry it has a handy sub-menu named "Sort by", which holds time-saving shortcuts

Unfortunately when a user is in the Recycle Bin, it does not have a sort order by "Date / Time Deleted" [which sort order I personally often use when I accidentally delete something]


And thus I propose adding such "Date / Time Deleted" sub-entry, which would:

- revert to previous sort order when user leaves the Recycle Bin [i.e. work like it does now when that sort order is chosen by clicking on a Column named "Date Deleted" when being in a Detailed View mode]

- automatically apply itself when user comes back to the Recycle Bin [i.e. work like it does now when that sort order has been chosen by clicking on a Column named "Date Deleted" when being in a Detailed View mode]

- stay grayed out [i.e. be present but non-clicable] when user is not in the Recycle Bin

- be present and applicable also when user is not in the overall Recycle Bin on operating system but also in a Recycle Bin folder [acceded through navigating to e.g. D:\$RECYCLE.BIN\S-1-5-21-3797103458-798797042-3558267449-1001]

Workarounds:

- Use sorting by Date Deleted in Auto views, to switch sorting you can use the context menu or other way, to switch back to "Date deleted" just refresh view (button or Ctrl+R), here is the guide:

FreeCommander XE "not so obvious" settings - Page 2 - FreeCommander Forum

- Use the column header item "Date Deleted", just click it, in details view.

- To quickly find last deleted file use the shortcut Ctrl+End, or the toolbar button.

Unfortunately, after having performed this workaround for at hundreds of times by now, for me it is simply very tiresome and annoying

And apparently this cannot be alleviated with a button added to some toolbar, as this peculiar sort order in not available on the list of shortcuts / options: viewtopic.php?t=13004
