Can you be a bit more explicit? Where do you want these details to show up? Normally you just set Windows Explorer to shows Details via View / Details then click on Tools / Folder Options / View Tab and Apply to all Folders then Apply and OK.

I think the OP means the actual file copy dialog that has a little triangle to show 'more details', so you can see file transfer speed and other information. I have wondered the same question too.

Teracopy seems interesting but unfortunately:
- u have to pay for it,
- u still have to click 'more' for more details, so what's the difference...

What about Windows Explorer - no hack here?
