How to show subject above/below sender in mail list in Outlook?

Normally in the compact view of a mail folder in Microsoft Outlook, it displays the sender and the subject of each email in the proper order. However, the senders and subjects show in different orders sometimes, for example the subject shows above the sender. See screen shot below. Here I will show you a way to show the subject above or below the senders in mails list in Microsoft Outlook.

    There's an easier way that I've found to do this:
    - Go to the View tab
    - 'Conversation settings'
    - Uncheck 'Show senders above the subject'

    Voila!

    Now if only I could figure out how to do this for the new 'conversation' inbox
