Windows XP folder views

 

Display File Details

 

Article by Marc Liron - Microsoft MVP (Windows Desktop Experience)

 



When you create a file and store it in a folder on your Windows XP machine, lots of information is associated with that file.

However by default Windows XP does not show all this information.

To find out all the possible options available to you we need to open the windows that lists them all.

 

 

 

To do this select View from the Menu toolbar, then select Choose details... (as in the screenshot below).

 

The screenshot below is the window that will open:

 

 

By selecting the options you require and then hitting the OK button. Your choices will then be shown the next time you view the files in the folder you are working in.

The best "folder view" to be in to fully take advantage of this customisation is the "details view".

If you want to know more about changing views please see: http://www.updatexp.com/tip1.html 

Please remember that this does NOT make changes to ALL your folders - just the one you are in at that time!
