Non-expert users may not find out how they can sort things.

Sorting for example files by name, size or date seems to be a quite
common thing for me, even for non-experts. Like when you want to find
the big files you could remove to free up some disk space.

If this confuses some users I think it would be a better solution to
make it even more obvious.

Another idea could be to have an option "simple interface" at the
accessibility settings.
