Windows 7: Can't change files' created and modified dates...

Can't change files' created and modified dates...

I would [almost] swear that I used to be able to click on a file in Windows Explorer and then add or change it's details such as the dates. I may be "misremembering" but I think I could do it at the bottom of the Explorer screen or by rick-clicking, selecting properties and the Details tab.

If it was ever true it is no longer so. I can't get any of the fields for a file, from Explorer or file properties/details, to open up for entry or modification.

After looking at similar posts here, I went through the Take Ownership process just to make sure there were no security issues but that didn't make any difference.

Shouldn't I be able to change a file's details and, if so, how the heck do I do it?

Thanks in advance,

Ever since I encountered similar difficulty in changing timestamps, I found and have been using SKTimeStamps. It also comes in 64bit flavor.
