Trouble with Mobipocket Reader desktop display

Some how, I have managed to change the display on my desktop Mobipocket Reader. It currently sorts by title. I no longer have the option to sort by author, which I prefer.

I have tried clicking the little display icon at the top of the screen, but it does not give me an author option --- can anyone help?

Windows XP home, if that information is helpful.

Thank you.

I suggest selecting the "details" view (under the Display icon). You can then click on the author header or select author from the "arrange by" option under the Display icon.

Thank you for your suggestions. This is what I have done:

Details is already selected when I click on the display icon. (has a black bullet)

Clicking Arrange by gives me these choices:
ebook title (which currently has a black bullet)
file size
rating
genre
last read date
reading time
read count

I do not see an author choice.

Am I accessing the wrong icon? Or is something else wrong with what I am doing?

Thank you, Barb

Try right clicking on the eBook title bar at the top of the list. It should bring up a menu to select what columns are displayed. Select author.

Thank You!

The display now will list by author.

It still doesn't look like it originally looked, but I am so grateful to have the author sort returned to me.

Again, Thank you
Barb
