Add Date Modified timestamp to files and folders like XP

October 28, 2014 at 18:36:55
Specs: Windows 7/46bit, Q9550/4GB
It used to be, you could just sort by modified in tile view and the tiles and folders would have the time stamp on the folder/file icon.

It was standard in XP but I cant find a way to bring it back in Win 7.

To clarify, "sort by Tiles" then arrange by modified.

I need to be able to see the date modified on the files and folders in tile view when sorted by "date modified".

Any help is appreciated...Googling brought me nothing :/

You can hover the mouse pointer over the file.

Or, use UltraSearch. Go into Search & make sure Include Folders is checked. List changed is where you can see the dates.

Thanks for sharing that, although what I'm looking for, more specifically, is a way within the OS to enable it...The searching is something i don't need although the program itself is nice.

Unfortunately no :/

The ""Date Modified" which I am referring to is visible in text on the file/folder. Tiles view.

See: "The Tiles View Explained" on your third link. The icons have info visible. I need the date to be visible too, like how it was with xp.

Thought for sure, it would be in there somewhere.

Got to be a way, hover the mouse pointer & you can see the info.

In "content" view Date modified is visible.

Try this, if you haven't already:

Right click on the column headings.
Where it shows File Name, Size, Type, etc. etc.

A menu should appear.
On the menu, you can check additional columns,
one of which should be Date Modified
also Date Created, Folder Path, etc. etc.
and if you click on the More button at the bottom
you will get a really loooong list to choose from.

See if that is what your looking for.
