    Customize Windows 10 File Explorer search result columns


    How do I customize search result columns in File Explorer? For example, I would always like to see the Date Created column in all my searches. I have tried using tips for earlier Windows versions, but Windows 10 seems to have disabled the "Apply to Folders" button in the View tab of the Folder Options window for search results.

    :)

    Change the color of the columns adjacent to Name column in the file explorer's sub folders in Windows 10.

    Original Title: Windows 10 File Explorer Details View, most columns have faint / low contrast font

    In Windows 10 (NOT Windows 7), in File Explorer, "Details" View, the font in the "Name" column is normal. But in the other columns ("Date Modified", "Size", etc) the font is fainter (lower contrast). I want to make all the columns look like the "Name" column.

    There are several references to this online regarding Windows 7, but I can't tell if they will be relevant or successful in Windows 10.

    Here's one of those webpages that has screenshots that show the exact problem (#2):

    Thanks
