  1. Disable the new folder settings that organize by date?

    With the new way the folders are set is pretty annoying especially with zip files, as i will unzip it and i have no idea which date the actual zip contents are and i have to search for it, i would rather it simply unzip and be at the front

  2. Windows 10 How to change “New Folder” default name for folders in explorer to current date and time?

    Before you begin you must change the Windows System date format under Regional Settings in Control Panel. You cannot use / in the date format since this is an invalid character for folder names. Change the / to – in the date format. You cannot skip this step. Your date format must contain valid characters for folder names.

    1. Go to registry editor using the regedit command.
    2. Go to HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Directory\shell.
    3. Make a new key New Folder.
    4. Inside this key, create another key command.
    5. Type the following value for the key inside it (edit the (Default) item's data): cmd.exe /c md "%1/%%DATE%%"
    6. Save and exit Registry Editor.

    Now, to create the folders, instead of clicking New > Folder, instead use the context item New Folder. This runs the command script defined in step 5, which creates a new folder with the current date.

    You will now have a folder with default name as the current date instead of "New Folder".

    Disable the new folder settings that organize by date?

    Quick Access not searching Pictures folder

    Summary, that last suggestion didn't work.

    • I moved the pictures to another folder temporarily.

    • Since there were no troubleshooting steps for this scenario, just for the heck of it, I ran through the restore steps. Copied some pictures into the Pictures folder, ran a Quick Access search and initial problem remains: Searching all of QA doesn't find any files in Pictures folder, running search on just the Pictures folder does. I want to run a global search and find matching files in any/all of the Documents, Music, Videos, and Pictures folders.
    That article dates from 2015 and I'm guessing is out of date. I hope it didn't create potential future problems in my registry.

    Bottom line: I'm still looking for a fix.
