Windows 7: Any way to stop Properties from showing relative times?

Any way to stop Properties from showing relative times?

When I make a backup I like to copy & paste the Properties dialog into my diary and it looks like this:

Any way to stop Properties from showing relative times?-props.jpg

What I would prefer is that the Created/Modified/Accessed fields show the actual times, not these "relative to Now" indications "7 hours ago".

Is there any way to change this behavior in W7HPx64, to show actual times?

Hello maxseven,

If you like, you could enable the "last access time" for this.

Last Access Timestamp - Enable or Disable in Windows

Hope this helps,

Sorry Brink but I don't understand how enabling that would give me non-relative times for the Created and Modified?

Once the file is older than 24 hours, it will show the actual date and time instead of X amount of hours ago.

Enabling the last access time stamp, will let it work. It has not affect on created and modified, but just accessed.
