Windows 7: Query - Copy Details

Query - Copy Details

Howdy Peeps,

Just wanted to ask whether it was possible to get the dialog box while copying files to one location to another to show the file it's currently transferring (if copying multiple files)

If you click the 'More Details' icon when copying multiple files it should show which file is currently being copied. This is dependent on the sise of the files & directory being copied to.

Hope this helps

Yes indeed! I would like it to ALWAYS show "More Details" by default!

Thanks for any assistance!

Why is this checked as Answered, when the issue of having it ALWAYS on by default isn't answered? You want a separate topic for that?

Note that the original query was answered. As for this supplementary query, I don't think that there is any way to have that as a default setting.
