When uploading image files, I sometimes need to reorder them so the newest, oldest, largest, etc are at the top.
It's been taking up to 3 minutes for Windows (7 64 bit) to reorder them so I can find what I'm looking for.
Is there a way to speed this process up?

If you have a ton of images in one folder, it could be building the thumbnails of images you didn't look at. Among other things that I'm not aware of. I would say since this is a file IO thing, the only way to speed it up is to do your usual HDD maintenance or get an SSD.
