"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."Via Kent Elrod and Ellen Finkelstein's AutoCAD Tips RSS feed. http://www.ellenfinkelstein.com/AutoCAD_tips_organize_files.html

Organize files in Windows to mimic the Today file listing
