Windows Explorer Columns
Hi,

The 'Date Modified' column doesn't appear on any of my folders. I add it,
and when i browse away from that folder and return to it, it's disappeared
again. How do i get every folder to show that column by default?

Thanks,
Albert

Re: Windows Explorer Columns
A known Vista annoyance, already solved in Windows7.
There're several solutions invlving Registry edit which sets your Template
for a specific filetype to what you want, not to MS default - if you Google
or Bing for it it should showuo in search results. Sorry I don't have exact
URL at hand.
it i

I know it's frustrating, but it's fixed in Windows7.
I can also tell you something odd;
after repeated resetting WinExplorer to appearance/columns I wish, somehow
it started to memorize them more & more often.
I never applied that solution mentioned baove, but somehow the problem is
reducing in intensity over time.
WinExdplorer here finally remembers appearances much of the time, sometimes
I create a NEW folder with for example images and it goes back to default
columsn - date taken, camera, artist, tags, etc rubbish I never need, and
have to manually reset it back to my over 15 YEARS OLD habit of showing List
View w/filename, size, type (+ sometimes date modified), nothign else.
Then next time I open it, it remembers, it used to be really bad but now
tolerable.

All I can say - if you get Windows7, most of these annoyances are fixed. I
am using a new HP laptop and whenever have to go back to old Vista laptop,
feel displeased!

all folder view settings to have the "Date Modified" column.
