    Explorer attribute that shows when files in a sub-folder are modified


    The "date modified" attribute only updates when a file in the root of a folder is modified. But it does not update if a file in a sub-folder is modified. Is there an attribute that will show when the contents of sub-folders are modified?

    :)

    File Explorer Sort Customization

    Louie - thank you for the feedback. However, I'm still struggling to accomplish my objective. I have extensive document files separated into folders with sub-folders and sub-sub-folders. Within each folder or sub-folder there are generally a dozen or more
    sub-sub folders and 50-200 files that are not grouped. In opening File Explorer, I'd like to see categories or folders listed above files and have each section listed by date modified. In other words, folders A - Z listed by date modified followed by files,
    again listed by date modified. Within each folder, sub-folders listed by date modified followed by files, again listed by date modified.

    I've had success accomplishing this type of listing in prior versions of Windows but haven't gotten the hang of it in Windows 10. Any insight would be much appreciated. Thank you.

    Change file attribute to 'unhide'

    Hello Walt,

    Thank you for posting your concern in Microsoft Community and welcome to the Windows 10 Family.

    I suggest you to follow the below steps to change the attribute of any file/folder to unhide.

    Step A: Show Hidden files

    1. Open Windows Explorer(win logo key+E) or My computer.

    2. Now click on View on top of the window.
    3. Untick ‘Hidden items’ in the options.

    Step B: Change file attribute

    1. Once the hidden file is located, right click on the file/folder you want to change the attribute for.

    2. Go to ‘properties’, untick the box facing hidden.

    3. Now, Click on ‘apply’ and then ‘ok’.

    Hope it helps.

    Thank You.

    How to Customize File Sharing Permissions to Create/Modify/Delete FILES... but not FOLDERS?

    Hello. I need to customize a shared folder on my network so that one user (Reba) can create, append, modify, delete all FILES within that folder and subfolders... but Reba should not be able to create or delete the FOLDERS.

    I've tested various configurations, and the closest I've been able to come is to create
    TWO sets of Advanced permissions for Reba:

    1. The first instance of Reba, is ALLOWED, applied to "This folders and subfolders,"

    • Traverse folder / execute file
    • List folder / read data
    • Read attributes
    • Read extended attributes
    • Create files / write data
    • Write attributes
    • Write extended attributes
    • Delete subfolders and files
    • Read permissions
    But Reba is DENIED permissions of:

    • Full control
    • Create folders / append data
    • Delete
    • Change permissions
    • Take ownership

    2. The second instance of Reba, is ALLOWED, applied to "Files Only:"

    • Traverse folder / execute file
    • List folder / read data
    • Read attributes
    • Read extended attributes
    • Create files / write data
    • Create folders / append data
    • Write attributes
    • Write extended attributes
    • Delete subfolders and files
    • Delete
    • Read permissions
    But Reba is DENIED permissions of:

    • Full control
    • Change permissions
    • Take ownership

    The above configuration does deny Reba the ability to create folders/subfolders... but ALLOWs her to delete folders (which I do NOT want her to be able to do).
