How to sort deleted email items by date deleted in Outlook?

By default, all Outlook emails are arranged by Date no matter which folder you are locating in. When you deleting an email, it will be moved from the destination folder to the Deleted Items folder automatically. If the deletion is accidental, it is hard for you to find the deleted email and recover it to the destination folder again because it was crowded among all the deleted emails. The best way for you to easily find the deleted email is sorting all deleted emails by date deleted. After sorting deleted emails by deleted date, the email you have just deleted will be right there at the top of the Deleted Items folder.

    I tried doing this, but I noticed there's a difference with my view settings, and my Advanced View Settings, shows as Compact. Is this still an option for me to be able to do?
