Hi Everyone

I've just noticed that Kindle for PC doesn't sort by "most recent". Sorting by author & title do work.

I've searched and found many people having the same issues but their fixes don't fix my problem.

Whatever title is clicked on, that goes to the top of the list just like Kindle. In list view, on the PC, dates are missing for the most recent setting. Obviously, if I open a book, it gets today's date and put at the top.

I have already uninstalled and reinstalled, Kindle for PC is 1.10.6 (40500) and Kindle for PC now says, Kindle for PC 3

Can anyone suggest a fix

Me again, sorry

Just found this from Amazon US
Sorting by Most Recent bug has been fixed -- see Announcement title "Kindle for PC and Kindle for Mac Version 1.10.1", posted "Jul 6, 2012 8:46:22 AM PDT" by Amazon Official "Kevin G. - Community Manager".
(contains download URL for Kindle for PC v1.10.1: )
I have downloaded and restarted my Kindle for PC...Most Recent sorting is now working and when you do the List option you can now see the date/time per book.
Thank you Amazon!!!!!
If it was fixed in July 2012, why is it broken after several "updates" almost a year later
Can we even download old versions?

I have K4PC 1.10.5 (40382)
For all books downloaded onto the pc i have all 3 sort options (title/author/date)
For all books in cloud i have 2 sort options (title/author)
Retro downloads are not possible.

I would have expected the cloud to have retained original purchase/acquisition date, but I guess it does not. I don't know if this supports your point or not, but I have to admit it's not vexing me any. CW.

I have downloaded this version of Kindle for PC, but it makes no difference. I still can't sort by most recent.

I have Windows 8.1 but have K4PC 1.10.6 installed (for Windows 7) and that has the "By most recent" option.

I have the option, but it doesn't work!

I believe most recent isn't based on the date you purchase a book but the date you download it to a device (or app) - or, like all Kindle devices, when you open that book at any time.

So to me, most recent in Kindle for PC seems to be working just fine. The only 'on device' books that don't have a date are two that were installed along with the app itself.

You're correct. My Windows 7 version, although showing the option, doesn't actually sort by Recent. I hadn't noticed before as I almost never read on my Laptop.

I've just installed the "proper" version of Kindle for Windows 8 and that sorts by Recent perfectly.
