I would like to see the option in Lr MacOS, to sort folders and Albums in the opposite Alphabetical order. On the iPad and iPhone this is possible, but not on the Mac! I am using Lr for many years now. I always create a new folder every year. The list gets longer and longer and I want 2022 and next year 2023 at the top instead of at the bottom. This is not possible in MacOS. I am sure this request has been asked before, but I can't find it in the community suggestion. This seems like an easy request it introduce as it already exists for iPad and iPhone, so, please add this for thr desktop version.

You are right. I never noticed you couldn't change the sort order in the Desktop app! Sort of weird.

On iOS you can order Albums A-Z or Z-A which is wonderful. Oddly on macOS you can only order from A-Z but not Z-A.

Like many, I start each Album with a date since otherwise I'd have no way of having all the albums order based on date and distinguish albums with the same name but on different days.

The problem is with A-Z it will have the lower numers first. But if such as a list of years it would show as:

1990

1991

....

2022

2023

Aka all the old albums in large collections would be at the top rather than the bottom. Again on iOS easily solved by simply letting you change to Z-A but not on macOS.
