When looking at my "All Pages" they are listed in Alpha order, and I have to scroll through to find what I am updating. Is there a way to have a preference setting that it be sorted by date, without having to tell it every time to do that?

If you go to All pages, and see up in the right courner you can see Screen Options.

You can set how many pages you want to have per page. Then wordpress will give you all the pages on one page. Then you can use CTRL + F or Mac I think it is Cmd + F, use that to search the page you are looking for.

Also you can sort it by date, by clicking on 'Title' or 'Date' to sort them:
