Windows 7: Need as much info to show in Windows Explorer as possible

Need as much info to show in Windows Explorer as possible

OK guys....

I've seen it done before and i would like to customize mine to do the same. In the screenshot i added, at the point i specified, i want to be able to view File name, Type, Size, Extension, and Date last altered or better yet display when the file placed on to the computer and NOT when it was last edited, copied, or moved, like how it shows by default. Or just moreinformation all together. And if possible, i would like to have this done to anything that i click in Windows Explorer. Drives, folders, files, etc.

You guy's gotta admit .... there's a lot of space for a BUNCH more info in that area and i would like to have as much info as possible, won't hurt nothing, im sure.

If i'm not mistaken no 3rd party programs are needed, but an easy to use GUI would be most welcome. I read someone talking about it slowing down the computer or something, but my system can handle it, of that i am positive.

I am also using an SSD drive as my primary. I Don't want to do this if it will have a negative impact on the SSD.

Thanks in advance guys.

Hello exitPr0gram,

If you like, you could use the tutorial below to enable the "last access timestamp". Doing so will cause increased overhead of SSD I/O though.
Last Access Timestamp - Enable or Disable in Windows
Afterwards, you could also use the tutorial below to add from a wide selection of different columns for different details.
Windows Explorer Columns - Add or Remove
Hope this helps,

Shawn

Remember to set your "Folder Template", once you have selected your columns.

Here are some tutorial links (all by Brink)

When you say last access stamp, does that mean it will display the last time the file was modified? Meaning moved, copied, etc? Or will it display the date the it was actually put on the computer. I would like it to display both, if possible.

Yep, enabling the Last access stamp would give the current last time any access or action was done to the file/folder, and not just the default when it was last put on the computer. You would still have Created, Modified, and Access details in properties. This affects the Access part.

Niiiice, bro.

I'm going to check it out.

I'm currently dealing with an issue where my SSD's System Partition keeps being created on my 7200RPM drive, which is slow and is causing small issues.

Once i get that squared away, its off to the tweaking. Including OCing =)
