Lost my Name, Date Modified, Type options

For some reason I have lost my Name, Date Modified, Type options at the top of my folders. I have gone thru every setting and can't seem to get them back. Any ideas???

Hello Steven,

Do you have Details set for the folder view?

If you do, then double check to make sure that these columns are checked using the tutorial below.

If you still cannot get them, then resetting all folder views back to default should be able to restore them.

Hope this helps,
