Organize files in Windows to mimic the Today file listing

Now this is a tips I've been looking for since Today was yesterday and removed from AutoCAD. I've used the grouping in Outlook 2003 but never though of its existance in Windows Explorer. Now I can group files based on date in the Open dialog box as well as in Explorer.
"When you're ready to open a drawing, you choose File > Open to get the Select Drawing dialog box. Place the cursor over some white space in the area where the files are listed, right-click, and choose Arrange Icons By > Show in Groups. If the files weren't already sorted by name, click the Name header. (If you don't have any headers, click Views at the upper-right corner of the dialog box and choose Details.) To see the files by date, click the Date Modified heading."
