Files grouped by date in Downloads folder on Windows 10 v1903 updates
 

Click or tap on the File Explorer icon from the taskbar. You can also open the File Explorer from Start menu.
* Navigate to the Downloads folder and go inside it.
* Go to the View tab on Ribbon bar, and click on Details > Group by, and select the (None) option from menu.

 

Now the Save As dialogue window still keeps displaying the items grouped by date. Simply right click any empty area within the dialog box, and select Group by (None).

 

Once you have applied the changes, all files are not sorted and become as before. But the files and folders will be categorized by dates in collapsible groups minutes later. To get rid of that permanently, you need to switch to Group (none) and continue to configure that below:
* Return to the View tab in Explorer ribbon again, and click on Options to bring up the Folder Options interface.
* Under the View tab, click on “Apply to Folders”button > Yes, and then click Apply > OK.
