How to open the latest file in a folder?

I have a folder with multiple excel files with different names?

How do I open the latest file.

Is there any function to check modified date of files.

Now you can do it in the image based actions:
Open Explorer->Sort by date->Select the top file

As it is planned to improve actions with files, we will add such features in one of the next releases.
Please vote for the topic to prioritize the feature.
