    In Windows 7 and earlier you could click View and "Choose Details" to customize which columns were displayed in an individual folder. Is there a way to do this in Windows 10?

    :)

  2. Understanding 'Choose Details' when viewing a folder

    Hi Calum,

    There are some factors that we need to consider regarding your concern. To properly diagnose this concern about the detailed folder, we would like to ask for a screenshot of the exact file folder. This will verify if this is possible in your files and folders.

    In the meantime, we suggest that you check this
    article
    for steps on how you can modify your folders.

    We look forward to your response to our queries.

    Understanding 'Choose Details' when viewing a folder

    Hi,

    I am trying to understand the Choose Details box that displays when you right-click in a folder.

    Once you click 'More..' it gives a whole host of Details to display for items in the folder.

    I want to display the following for files in a folder: Assistant's Name
    and Assistant's phone . But where do you actually assign these details for these files/items in this folder?

    These details seem useful, but there aren't much demos on this feature.

    thanks.

    kind regards,

    Calum

    You Mean like this? You can also right click on any column title and add them.

    Can also access it like in older versions of Windows w/o using the ribbon. Click the detail View button in lower R corner. Click anywhere in highlighted rectangular bar. Window will open with active columns checked. Click 'More' at bottom of drop down window for access to almost any other detail column you'd want and more.
