Is there any way to show extended detail in the details pane ?

Q: Is there any way to show extended detail in the details pane ?

Hai Im new here..

Recently I was trying to add comments to movie folders so that i can keep a brief description about it when i click on it. It was easy to add comment then i had a bit trouble to get the comment getting displayed in the details pane...after playing with the registry for a while i got that solved as well.
Now I ended up with a problem where the comment being displayed eds with just some 3 or 4 words with the remaining given in dots (...) and I get a full display of it when i hover the mouse over it, which obviously goes way in 5 seconds or so.

So what i need is to find a way to expand what ever that is shown in the details pane so that it shows the entire content in consecutive lines without being restricted to one line (without having to hover a mouse)

You might get a picture of it if you have a small details pane on the right and make it show your processor details when you open thisPC.

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

How can I re-associate .mp4 files with video details displaying in the Details Pane? After installing the K-lite codecs pack, my mp4's all began displaying in the details pane as audio files (Album, Artist etc) and no longer displays the important video default details (size, frame height, bitrate etc). I assume it was because of incorrectly associating file types when installing the codecs (even though wmv's, avi's are still correct), so I uninstalled the codecs but the Details categories remain for typical audio files. I've exhausted The Google and I'm stumped... any help? (Win7, 32-bit with VLC as my default player) Thanks!

Hi,

This is my first thread in this forum.

I have just upgraded Vista -> 7 and Windows Explorer is driving me crazy.
What I do is following:

1. I choose a folder i Navigation Pane and Detail Pane is only showing File name in a narrow column.
2. Then I customize the Detail Pane ... detail view, more columns, column width ... and so on
3. Drag the Name column so I can see all the columns
4. Fine ... everything looks OK
5. Close Window Explorer and restarts it again
6. The customization for the detail pane are there ... but the column witdth is so narrow that I only can see File name
7. I have to drag the column witdth every time to see the other colums ... very annoying

A:Detail pane

in seven,there's no more "remember folder view option" . I don't know why they removed it. which means every time you get to that folder,you need to change it again. and out.again.

however I came across some fix but I can't confirm if this is what you want

Windows 98 - Windows Explorer

When using windows explorer on the top of the page you can choose in the "view" whether you want to see the files as Large Icons, Small Icons, List or Details. All of a sudden when choosing "details" the files cannot be seen. On the Left side is the folders but when using details the right side of explorer is blank. When either Large Icons, Small Icons or list is chosen the files appear on the right side. Any help will be appreciated. Thanks Jim.

Hi,

I'm using Windows 7 Professional x64. When I use Windows Explorer to view image files (jpg, png, etc.), I would like to see each image's dimensions listed in the Details Pane (when it's set to view the images as Icons/Thumbnails, rather than Details). However, the only details that show up in the Details Pane are Name, Type, Date Created, Date Modified, and Size. This is the case even though:

* I've checked 'Dimensions' in the 'Choose Details' options
* The folder is already categorized/optimized for 'Pictures'
* Other folders show the other details I want -- i.e., the Details Pane for my 'Videos' folder shows Length, Frame Width, Frame Height, and other details that I've chosen

Any suggestions are appreciated. Thanks.

In order to customize which fields are displayed in the details pane for a given file type you can:

1. Run Regedit.
2. HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Classes\SystemFileAsso ciations\.mp3 (Or whatever file type you want to edit.)
3. Edit the PreviewDetails string.

My question is:
Is there a way to do something similar for folders? Currently, the only info displayed in the details pane when a folder is selected is Date modified, and Availability. I would like to add other details to this pane (Size, Date created etc...). Is this possible?

Hi All. I have an Excel spreadsheet that allows users to select the filters they need in a pivot table to get counts of relevant records (originally built using slicers which I had to remove due to the users having older versions of Excel!) and then I have added a simple button macro to "export" the filtered records to a new sheet (basically the same as double clicking on the count).

The problem I have is that I need to show all fields in the pivot, i.e. I cant simply add another filter, but when the user presses the button, I only want to export one of the 'lists', whereas at the moment it exports a new sheet for every value.

Is there anyway of telling the macro which value it should export on button click?

Here is the macro.., (obviously copied from the internet!)

Sub MakeReports()
Dim c As Range
With ActiveSheet.PivotTables(1)
For Each c In .DataBodyRange.Resize(, 1)
c.ShowDetail = True
Next c
End With

End Sub

Failing that, would there be any way of renaming the new worksheets to match the titles in the pivot?

Many thanks in advance for your help

You have this "problem" because ".aaa" is not a recognized file extension. For performance reasons, Windows does not look beyond the file extension to determine the type of the file, which is why when you rename ".exe" to ".aaa", you loose the display of its properties. And likewise renaming anything to ".exe" to try and find file properties is just looking for trouble.

Hello.

I've been trying to re-organize my photo collection. Previously, I had been using Windows Live Photo Gallery to tag my photos, and admittedly it was convenient. Recently, though, the program has gone on the fritz to where thumbnails aren't loading so it's harder to differentiate photos simply by the file name in cases where I have a lot of photos of the same group or folder. While I've tried a lot of troubleshooting to get the thumbnails to load, and would gladly take advice on that issue, in the meantime I'm trying to accomplish the same thing using the details pane in explorer.

When I highlight a photo right now, most file types load the date stamp, tags, rating, author(s) and comments properties in the details pane. However, I'd like to edit the people properties so I can tag individuals in the photos. I have not seen a way to easily do that short of using other software (such as Photo Gallery).

Does anyone know if there's a way to do this through explorer or will it require a separate application?

Is there any way to permanently remove or disable all of the various "views" in the Windows 7 Navigation Pane *except* for Details? If a subdirectory contains audio files I *never* want to see "Album" or "Artist" or any of the rest of that garbage. If the subdirectory contains an image file I *never* want to see a thumbnail of images. If I need more information about a file I'll right click on it and select Properties, thankyewverymuch!

In short, when I click anywhere in the left or right panel in the Navigation Pane I never want to see *ANYTHING* except the file name, type, size, and date modified.

Hello everyone,
1st i need to thank every member of this forum who helped me in my previous threads.
2nd every time i choose all/some of the files in a folder to see their details i need to click "Show more derails", Is there anyway to make it show AUTOMATICALLY?

A:How to; Automatically Show More Details!

This worked in XP and I don't know if it works in Windows 7 but if you have 7 Professional or Ultimate you have the ability for XP Virtual Machine so theoretically it should work there. It is not anything I'd use as DEFAULT since when I do need more details it's usually 1 or 2 folders. YMMV, here is the link

I am trying to tidy up my hard drives and seem to have a lot of duplication, some intentionally as backups but others not. I had been using Ultra Explorer to do this as I could look at 2 or more drives at the same time in dual-pane view and it gave you folder sizes which Windows Explorer doesn't do. Unfortunately, when I viewed my music folder in Ultra Explorer it gives some strange results, saying there is no content in a folder when I know it is there and I can no longer trust it.

Please can anyone recommend software which shows the breakdown of files and folders and allows you to do this in dual-pane view. I have tried Folder View by MindGems but this doesn't seem to have a dual-pane view. I am running Vista.

Thanks for any help.
 

A:Show folder size and dual-pane view?

Try xplorerē - lite, I've used it for years and I really like it.

It has dual panes and to show sub-folder size hit Ctrl+D.

They also have a paid version, but the free one does everything I need.
