In this example this is a two files:


  • With lisp almost anything is possible. ;-) But please clarify what you mean by "younger" (not older than). File creation time? Last modification time?

  • There's also just sorting by time (s). (And since you apparently use Dired+, see also C-x D R (diredp-recent-files).)

    Sorry, I meant diredp-dired-recent-files, not diredp-recent-files. (The former is a command, bound to C-x D R; the latter is a helper functions.) And perhaps you need to update your version of Dired+.

You can use https://github.com/syohex/emacs-dired-k . By default, dates are fade with age.

As @Drew said (Thanks), you can use dired-k.el together with Dired+.
