Windows 7: how to add/show Custom Columns in Windows explorer's Detail view

how to add/show Custom Columns in Windows explorer's Detail view

in windows explorer, if we change view type to detail view, we can see file properties in columns, e.g. type, size, etc. etc. We can right click on any column heading and click more to add more columns.
I want to show more file properties which are not standard but custom file properties, which we can view after right click go to properties and in custom tab.
I have searched so much about this, but could not find any solution.

I am asking about custom properties, which you can add yourself in any office file. you can do it by right click on any office file and click properties, go to custom tab, there you can type any word to assign a property name and value to that file.

try this as far as i know standard explorer does not have custom properties but it does have a ton of options. i think if you scroll through them more list you may find what your looking for, but since you arnt being specific of what properties you would like to add its the best i can do.

it almost same situation like this post below :
Can we modify or add a custom columns on Explorer?
as you can see only standard columns we can add, but can type our own column title to show in explorer.

Explorer++ doesn't have that option to add custom columns too.
it shows same standard column headers.

when you go to more there are a ton of options you can add, what exactly are you trying to sort by? or do you just want to change the name of an existing property?
