In Windows Explorer, the Details view looks like this:
As you can see, there is a list view in which the items can be sorted by one of many attributes. I would like to know what this sort of list view is called. Thanks very much.

For Windows, it's known as a List View. Although you would not be chastised for simply calling it a "sortable table".
Mac OSX has the same sort of control, which is called out as a "list view or table" inside of the OSX HIG.
Java also has the same control type, but they call it a "TableView". OpenJDK even has some user experience docs on it: https://wiki.openjdk.java.net/display/OpenJFX/TableView+User+Experience+Documentation.
Note that while the above is not a file list, the ability of Java to alter a controls look-and-feel would easily produce a file list from a TableView. Java does actually have a "ListView" control too, which could also be made to behave as Windows and Mac's (https://wiki.openjdk.java.net/display/OpenJFX/ListView+User+Experience+Documentation)
