    With some Googline I found this was a reported issue a few years ago, but I am still experiencing it. As far as I can tell, it is a new issue, though I have experienced it in the past.

    But why does this keep happening? Should I dare try Windows 11 to fix the issue? I am extremely frustrated by this.

    Windows 10 Tweaks

    Pressing “Windows+Pause Break” (it’s up there next to scroll lock) opens the “System” Window.

    Windows 10: In the new version of Windows, Explorer has a section called Quick Access. This includes your frequent folders and recent files. Explorer defaults to opening this page when you open a new window. If you’d rather open the usual This PC, with links to your drives and library folders, follow these steps:

    • Open a new Explorer window.
    • Click View in the ribbon.
    • Click Options.
    • Under General, next to “Open File Explorer to:” choose “This PC.”
    • Click OK

    How2 CHange dates of a file--suggested software not good enough

    I used SKTimeStamp to change the dates of a file. However, I noticed it could only change 3 dates:
    Date Created
    Last Modified
    Last Accessed
    A search for such a utility often suggests "BulkFileChanger (BFC)" which seems to do the exact same thing: only these 3 dates.
    However, if I right click on a file, for example a Word file, there 2 other dates listed:
    Content Created
    Date last Saved

    Hence the above two utilities are not good enough. Is there a utility (or way) out there to change all dates including the last 2 mentioned?

    Thanks in advance.

    After editing file changes aren't saved.

    Hi,

    Thank you for your reply.


    • Which account are you using? Is it Administrator account or standard account?
    I suggest you to login with Admin Account and create a new user account and try to edit the files.

    Refer the link below to add an account to the PC.

    Add or remove accounts on your PC

    If you don’t have admin account follow the steps below and check if it helps

    You can Enable the built in Administrator account in Windows 10, then create a local account.

    I suggest you to refer the steps below and check if it helps


    • Press Windows+ X, select
      Command Prompt
      , and then click Run as Administrator.

    • When you are prompted by User Account Control, click Continue.

    • At the command prompt, type net user administrator /active: yes, and then press Enter.

    • Type net user administrator
      <Password>
      , and then press Enter.

      Note In this command, <Password> represents the actual password that you want to set for the administrator account.

    • Type exit, and then press Enter.

    • Log off the current user account. And login and check the are you able to edit the files.


    Hope this helps. If the issue remains unresolved, please get back to us and we would be happy to help.
