Windows 7: Always show "More Details" to file copy progress window

Always show "More Details" to file copy progress window

After always being OCD about it and clicking it in every prgress window, I've been on the hunt to no avail to end the compulsive fit of mine. I cannot seem to dig up anything googling it either.

What I'm trying to do is find out how to make Windows 7 (Windows 7 Ultimate, to be precise) always show "more details" during file transfers (copy, cut/paste, deleting, etc).

The concept is pretty easy, but like I said, I can't find out how/where to do it. Something tells me it is probably an easy Registry Editor key/hack.

Anyone know how to enable this?

Btw, there are a few other (I believe three) posts about this exact inquiry on these forums. Nobody has received a Windows-based resolution (albeit one responder did recommend using TeraCopy).

I hate to be redundant with this topic, but it seems nobody has posted a solution.

Bummer, this stinks. I'm Googling for this right now and looks like no solutions so far.

There is a decent alternative, though, that adds a copy replace command on your content menu in Explorer: Donwnload Content | SuperCopier Website
