Customize The Amount Of Data Displayed In The Explorer Screen

BY STANLEY ZAROWIN

Q. When I open Explorer to rearrange files, the opening screen is so packed with information I barely can find what I need. Is there some way to show only the data I want?

A. Yes, you can fully customize it. When you evoke Explorer , click on View in the toolbar and then click on Choose Details . That brings up this screen:

Notice all the options—from Name to Product Versio n (click on the down arrow to see the rest of the list). Put a check next to the details you want displayed. For most folders I check just four details: Name, Size, Date Modified and Date Created . You can customize each folder. Notice, too, you can rearrange how the details line up on the screen by adjusting the Move Up and Move Down buttons.
