[1] Using Google Chrome browser latest on ChromeBook - I am clicking on my Watchlist in the upper-right, then clicking to View All (ahem) 620 items; I then click the Sort drop-down, choose "Date Added," then toggle the UP arrow to a DOWN arrow icon by clicking, but the list remains the same, it does not change. Might be a Bug Report.
[2] Also, any way to download my WatchList e.g. to CSV file, or XML, or view the entire Watchlist in one single HTML page?
[3] Any way to see Watchlist as a much "thinner" list i.e. vertically per list item, just a plain textual list of hyperlinks?

Thanks - suggestions if not :D ..from Peter in La Jolla San Diego, CA, USA, Earth

That's the Earth in the Milky Way, right? Revolves while orbiting its Sun? Pretty blue marble?

#2: Yes, they hid the Export at the bottom of the Watchlist page:

#1: I tried sorting on my Chromebook (Chrome 74, then updated to 75 and repeated the test), and had no trouble either Viewing the list or Editing it (I wasn't really clear what you meant by clicking to View All; I keep my Watchlist trim to use it for making lists based on searches.)

#3: Use Advanced Title Search to look at a Compact view of your list.
Gives you lots of sort options too, right on the listing.

Hi Peter,

For the sorting issue you're experiencing with your Watchlist, can you please confirm your Chrome browser is updated to the latest version then try once more?

Also, some pop-up blockers or extensions/add-ons may cause issues with the display and function of pages. You can try using an incognito browser window to determine if this may be the case with your browser.

Please let us know if we can offer any further help.
