I have gotten used to my K1's home screen to be sorted by "Most Recent First" but my K2 will not do this. It will sort by Author and by Title. Is this the way it is with K2?

Most recent first is an option on the K2. Up at the top of the screen the choices are:

Most Recent First Title Author

I have mine sorted by Most Recent First. It works fine....

You move the 5 way and make sure the option for Most Recent First is underlined, right? Then click the 5 way?

Check again and report back. This might be a CS issue. It is a feature and should work.

My K2 works fine.  It sorts by "Most Recent First" and it puts the books I most recently read or purchased first.  So if I buy a new book, it goes to the top, but if I then go to read a little of a different book, the book I've had longer will sort to the top, the new purchase will be second in the list.

That's the way it works on mine. The most recent thing I've looked at, no matter what it is, is at the top of the list.

I had that happen once to me and I puzzled over it and kept trying to do it by the sort by - finally I did a reset and then it worked -- it seemed to be a blip - it has been fine since though.  Had me scratching my head when I couldn't find the book I was reading the night before.

CS#3 did acknowledge that it works that way on 1 and 2. after fiddling and testin and questioning she said the thing i needed was WN. So next time you are in that area turn it on...

doctor needs and family trips (last October) take me away. oh well I am behind on some of my annual check ups ...

That actually makes a sort of sense.  Your Kindle doesn't know what time or day it is unless it can talk to the world and find out.  So it would have no idea what 'most recent' means if it has no time reference.  But I think once you teach it the time via WN it will remember unless you have to do a major reset.

it sort of does though K1 never had this problem but it had the correct time and said it was registered where k2 says its not..

I might have a coupon for a free flight (I save for quick escapes) stashed mabe I will pull one out.

So yesterday my Kindle blipped again and the current books went to the back of the list  ??? I did sort by all three variations thinking maybe that would make it correct itself but I ended up doing a reset again - wonder if it had to do with the time change -- or if it will just blip from time to time ::)

yes I am - I'm out on the end of Long Island, NY and I get a 3x so I would say there is no problem there -- it is weird and the only way to fix it is to do a reset that I have found ...

I liked the most recent first. I was the best work around the lack of tags/subjects or at least folders. CS thinks getting into WN land will help mine. hope yours fixes up. I can work around the author sort and I do like reading on it in other words I am still a kindle fan.

Like someone else mentioned, it should be resolved the next time you're able to connect to WN.

I just reset my K2 this morning after a sample seemed to freeze it up (I suddenly couldn't change the page in the sample, I returned to the Home screen, and then I kept getting "unexpected error" when trying to open anything else). The reset worked fine, but then my K2 wouldn't sort by Most Recent First. My WN is usually off, so after reading this thread for a solution, I turned WN on and now it sorts Most Recent First just fine.

Phew! Problem solved! :)
