When I search for a folder/file, I want to sort by date and view when the folder/file was LAST MODIFIED. I find LAST OPENED to be useless. Someone in the Dept. may have opened a file just to see what it was, but so what. That tells me nothing about the time frame when the file was created or worked on.
For instance I want to find the most recent logo for joe's muffler shop. I search for "joe's muffler" and find several items. What looks to be the most recent (OPENED "yesterday") was actually MODIFIED in June 25, 2004.

How can I change a spotlight Find to show me the last MODIFIED date?
