It looks like you are sorting on Date > Artist > Title. Is that not the same sort you see when adding to the Now Playing? That seems to work here (using Play Last). So if you sort on Album (or Album Artist > Album) you'd get files in Album order.

On the Column Headers in the Filelisting. See the little arrows next to Title, Artist and Date, that is a sort order you've applied at some point. Click on the Album column header to sort on Album Artist (which automatically sorts on Album Artist > Album > Disc# > Track#).

You did on the screenshot in the first post. Just click on the Album Artist Column Header in the Filelisting to sort on it.

Just that Collection, Playlists are not affected by sorting in Collections. Note that AutoPlaylists sorting can only be changed in the AutoPlaylist settings and Playlists require you to set the new sort for it to be the new sort.

For a regular playlist click on a column header (or headers) to sort as in any set of tracks. Then right-click on the playlist name; the first menu item should be Update Play Order. Choosing this will fix the current order as the normal, ongoing order for that playlist. If you add tracks to the playlist you will have to manually re-sort and re-update. You set the sort order for auto-playlists under the Advanced tab of the Edit Auto-Playlist form.
