Okay, so I missed it. ::)

...in doing my searches on this subject (and others) on this forum I noticed a lot of other snide replies similar to yours, to users looking only for a little help.  Coppermine is a great product, why is it that users seeking assistance on these forums are continuously belittled for asking questions?  Because they may not have read the instructions cover to cover?  Or God forbid they missed it?  BIG DEAL... get over it.  People are just asking for a little help.

Now back on topic...

Is there a way to automatically sort the Album View ascending or descending by date created?

People are not trying to be 'SNIDE' as you put it. The supporters are all doing this for free in their own spare time. How would you feel if you kept getting asked the same question time after time especially when you had provided the answer in the docs. This question has been asked numerous times before and as the answer is in the docs then that is where you will be directed. There is always the search function.

If you want the answer then read the docs. Don't expect others to do the reading for you because you cannot be bothered.

So read Fabricio's link and this one.

It is a mistake to think you can solve any major problems just with potatoes.

When you sign up you tick a little box that says something like: "I agree the forum polices"

Well, first of them says:

It is mandatory to read the documentation before being allowed to post a question in the first place. If your questions shows that you haven't read the docs, you will probably only get a short answer that contains a link to the docs.

So, I reply fine  ;)

A short answer with a link to the documents would've been fine... where's the part in the policy that states the short answer will also be snide?  Or did I miss that too?

Phill gives you a good explanation about why did I reply like this. Anyways, if you are here to solve the problem try to follow our advises. If you are here to argue, please, stop it.

Okay, I did read the instructions and links posted but am still unable to figure out if it's possible to do what I would like to do.

I would like my Album List View to display the last created album first.  Currently, the last created album is displayed last.
