    Win Explorer Slowing down with Date/Length Columns


    win10 Pro 20h2

    Been questioning if there is another way on this "problem", whenever i get to folders with videos it takes quite some time reading every single one checking for its date and length, does it need to check all the files every single time? can't it save the previous one and only update if the file gets changed?

    Lenght not that important still helps but date is important otherwise i would simple remove them *Sad.

    :)

    File Explorer Date column - whiich date is it?

    The column heading in Win 10 File Explorer is 'Date'. But which one?

    I've always been used in XP to the default being 'Date modified', but it seems that here it's Date created? Several re-saves have left 'Date' unchanged.

    Win Explorer Slowing down with Date/Length Columns

    Replace Date column with Date Modified

    In File Explorer I can right-click a column heading and get a list of choices with Date Modified on it which by default appears when creating a New, Folder. If I click the More at the bottom of that list I find several choices about date with Date [by itself] being the first, Date Modified not there since it's already in use.

    .
    Another point, File Explorer windows will show different column headings based upon the content of the Folders being viewed, e.g. Music will be different from Pictures, etc.

    And may be necessary to click the View tab then Options then the resulting View tab and choose Apply to all Folders although it may not always work as desired, I use that to show Details in most all instances of File Explorer.
