I need a way to select the newest file in a folder and install it. what's the best way I tried to sort by date modified. but the next time I run the action it sorts it the opposite way.

is it a different folder or the same folder? If you set the sort order it should stay the same every time you open it, you shouldn't have to do anything in the shortcut if it has the sorting set already.

Does your shortcut itself include a click on the "date modified" column of the finder window? If so, this would reverse the sort order every time you run it.
