OS X "arrange by" in column view

I usually have the OS X Finder set to display folders and files in alphabetical order by setting the view mode to arrange the display of files and folder by name. But sometimes I switch to view by size, etc. However, when I then switch back to view the files and folders in column mode arranged by name, Finder doesn't actually display them in alphabetical order, which is annoying.

I finally got to the point where the issue was so annoying that I felt I had to find a solution. I found Brett Taylor's HOWTO: Fix file sorting in Finder‘s column view on Mac OS X Lion article which provided a means to address the issue. Though the title for his article, which acknowledges Barney-15E's post at In OS X Lion, Finder will not "Arrange By > Name" in "Column view", references OS X Lion, I found the solution worked for OS X El Capitan (10.11.6) on my MacBook Pro. I was able to sort the entries by name by the following steps:

  1. In the Finder, click on a directory to select it than click on View on the menu bar, then select Arrange By, then None.

    Finder - arrange by

  2. Then click on View again and hold down the option key and select Sort By then Name.

    Finder - sort by name
