    Date modified with seconds in windows file explorer


    Hi!

    For my studies I need the exact time including the seconds from many many pictures that we made. Does anyone know how I can easily make them show in the overview of the files in windows file explorer? Right now I only see this:

    Date modified with seconds in windows file explorer [​IMG]


    I know that I can also access it via properties, but that is a lot of work to do for every single picture if it needs to be done thousands of times Date modified with seconds in windows file explorer :)

    This is in windows 10 fyi (version 1909, build number 18363.1379).

    Help would be appreciated!

    Thanks a lot,

    :)

    File Explorer Date Created and Modified not always correct

    Hi,

    The File Explorer may have encountered a system conflict that caused this issue. For us to start with initial troubleshooting, we'd like to know more information, kindly answer the following questions:

    • Which build and version of Windows 10 do you have?
    • In File Explorer, what does it indicate in the Date column? Does it show Date Modified or Date Created? (right click the Date Modified section at the top, which are the ones that has a checkmark?)
    • Which troubleshooting steps have you done so far?

    Kindly get back to us for further assistance.

    Windows Explorer is slow to update "date modified" and hampers searching for most recently updated files

    Windows Explorer doesn't seem to be keeping up with "date modified". E.g. I modify a file in Word then save it to my local drive. Then I open Windows Explorer and sort by Date Modified. The file I just saved should be displayed at the top of the file
    list, but it doesn't. I have to also add that it "sometimes" works, but most of the time, it doesn't. It seems like it takes several minutes for the file system to update to sort by Date Modified. Any suggestions?

    Illogical date modified updating

    Hi,

    Thank you for writing to Microsoft Community Forums.

    I understand that the modified date is just as important as the created date within the metadata of a given file. We will look into this for you.
    However, in order to get clarity and to assist you accordingly, please reply with the answers to the questions below.

    1. What is the build of Windows 10 running on your system?
    2. Was there any major change or an update on your system prior to which you weren’t facing this issue?
    3. Is the issue only with the pictures taken from the camera or the other pictures and files within the system as well?

    Meanwhile, I would suggest you to follow the steps below and check if it is helpful to you.

    Method 1: Enable the Date Modified Column in the File Explorer.

    To enable the Date modified column within the particular folder, please follow the steps below.

    1. Open the Folder in which you wish to see the Date modified column.
    2. Right-click on the
      Header for Name, date, type etc. This will give you a list of columns that can be displayed.
    3. Select the option Date modified, clearing the tick removes that column.
    4. Modify a file and check if it is being reflected in the Date modified column.

    If the issue still persists, where you aren’t able to see the value in the Date modified column even after making the changes to the particular file, please follow ‘Method 2’.

    Method 2: Create a new user account.

    This issue could be due to profile corruption. Hence to eliminate possibilities, I would suggest you to ‘Create
    a local user or administrator account
    ’ and check if the issue persists.

    Note:
    You will not see all your files under your default file location. So your data will be saved under C:\users\user_name.

    We await your response.
