An immediate solution in order to change the folder view and to select details you want to display for the items in the current folder in Windows 7.
The immediate resolution to the concern as the following instructions:
1. Open your Windows Explorer, go to Start (the Window Logo Button), then click All Programs, go forth to the Accessories then click it, from there, click Windows Explorer. The easiest way to open Windows Explorer is by pressing a Window key on the keyboard plus E (Win+E) at the same time.
2. Go to your chosen Folder to change its folder view and details of items to be displayed. From that Folder, click on the upper-right with the drop down option namely More options. Click it then choose from the options display.
Note: To see all the Details you want to display for the items, choose Details.
3. In order select details you want to display for the items in the current folder.
Go to Choose Details Options. To activate it, if you don’t have yet a Menu Bar on your Windows Explorer, click Organize, go to Layout, then from there click on Menu Bar to activate it.
4. Now you have a Menu Bar, click on View, and click on Choose details. This will give you lots of items to select and to be display on the folder. Select on the details you want to display for the items, then click Ok afterwards you finalize the selections.
Note: More faster way to see the Choose details is to right-click on details / items on the folder header, from there select More.
5. To finalize and make it permanent on the current folder and to the same type of folders, (I think it will also take effect on the other folders, that’s what I have encountered. For some reasons, I don’t know why. All I know if it’s same type of folder, then it will also change its view.)
Click on Organize, then select and click Folder and search options, then at the Folder Options, click on View tab. At the Folder views, click Apply to Folders.
And the prompt will tells you want all folders of this type to match this folder’s view settings? Then click Yes.
You will see that the other folder of the same type will take effect within the changes.
(This will be useful, if you are viewing multiple files within the folder and other folder, for an example would be a Album with multiple pictures or files to check its date modified and date created details.)
I hope this helps you to resolve your concern.
