Why are the open windows not listed in any kind of order?

Posted

It's bad enough there's no menu showing all the open tabs, but why does the dropdown menu for open Windows not be in ANY order whatsoever? It would certainly stop having to look up and down the list every time I want to go to a different window if they were in either alphabetical or chronological order.

The windows listed in the Window menu are in chronological order starting with the oldest window near the top and the newest window at the bottom.

The problem might be that you've opened a new tab in an old window. The windows are still listed in the same order but now they have the name of the newest tab.

In my screenshot I opened this question in a new tab in my oldest window.
