You'd think so, wouldn't you....but, unfortunately, not!
There's no way to do this with XP's Windows Explorer.
The nearest, and most helpful answer I can give you is ;
Click on the "Type" heading then, using the mouse and holding down the
Ctrl-key, highlight (select) all the files of the type you want, say [.tmp]
Then, when all the [.tmp] files are still highlighted, click on the "Date"
All the files will now be arranged by "Date"
But while the [.tmp] files will still be scattered all over the place -
this time, they will still be highlighted which makes them much easier to
