Why Explorer in Windows 7 keeps grouping files by type when I want them by date?

Each group is sorted by date (modified), but I would like all files sorted by date (mixed types, like an old'n'good DIR command).

In Explorer windows press alt, it'll show you an old style panel on the top of the window. There select View -> Group by and deselect grouping criteria.
