I'm using Nemo as my file manager and when I press the right mouse button the only option to sort my Desktop is by Name.

right click Desktop menu

Is it possible to sort by other values, like Date Modified?

Nemo is a fork of nautilus.

When I right click on my desktop, I can't see a sort by anything else either:

Nautilus right click menu
