Folder Detail View, Display in MB...Win2K

Q: Folder Detail View, Display in MB...Win2K

In a folder in Detail View, can I have Win2K display file sizes in MB instead of KB in the column? It displays them as MB in the status bar when you select a file but I'd rather have the MB value displayed in the Size Column.

If so, how do I do it?

Hi there!

I'm deploying a XP image on a small company with an AD, and thus, domain users.

I'm having a lot of troubles making all new users view all folders as Detail View.
The best would be editing customized views in an user and then make it as default for all new users that would login. That would mimic settings like the Control Panel detail view.

And as a side request, I would like to make the Icon "User Accounts" open the window "control userpasswors2". Is it possible? The XP's wizard for the User Accounts is no good in my case.

Best regards!

Does anyone know if there is a way to get comments to show up for folders when viewing content of a folder in detail view? I can get it to work for all other files in the folder (shortcuts, programs, etc.) by going to Properties and typing in the comment, but file folders don't appear to have this option.

Hi everyone.

I have a question that I am sure would have been answered, but I could not find an answer while searching this great board, so I will ask.

I have set the "choose detail" view for a USB drive root folder that I would like to cascade down through all sub-folders only.
Note: Even though I have specified a USB drive here, I can't make it work on a fixed drive either.

I do not want my already previously set folder in other directories to change. I have looked through the folder view options but just can't seem to get it right. Can anyone help me out please.

Ever since I did a factory reinstall 3 months ago, every time I close my machine down and restart, my Windows Explorer settings keep getting reverted back to ICON view instead of my saved DETAIL view.

I'm using the button under tools and folder options, View Tab, and Apply to all Folders.

Is there something else I'm missing?

This is starting to get pretty annoying.

Don't laugh if there is a sooper simple fix to this, cuz I just can't find it...

As far as setting all of the folders in Explorer to detailed view, that's a piece of cake.

BUT...When I'm in an application and select 'Open', you know that little 'Select File' window that opens up, where you can kinda browse to the file you want to open?
Well in that little window, there's a little drop-down doohickey in the upper-right where you can change the view to detail or list or whatever you want, and of course it changes the view in that little window.
But is there a way to have it default to a certain view?
For now, it always defaults to List view whereas I want my Detail view, dernit!
And Explorer's Folder Options don't seem to have any effect on it.

Any ideas?

Thank ya.

A:Detail view, List view, defaults...

No, there is no way I know of to do it. As it controlled by the application being used.

Hello, I recently got a new computer running Windows 7, and I wanted to see about changing the folder view--not the folder tree, but the way the actual folders appear, specifically for folders containing photos. I do digital graphics and designs. I have a lot of photos in different folders, and my old computer displayed each folder as a flat, square folder with 4 little preview images of what is in the folder. The new version of Windows displays the folder vertically with the folder open and the documents/photos inside spilling out, it is difficult to tell what is in each folder, I really want to go back to the old way. I looked in the folder options in the control panel but don't see anything for a classic view. Please tell me there is a way to view the folders in Windows 7 like in the old XP....Thanks!!

A:how do you view ALL folders in detail mode?

Go to explorer.

Set the view to details.

Go to tools, folder options.

Go to the view tab.

There is an option to set all folders like current. Click it, and it will set all the folders to display just like the current folder.

As you may know, XP lets you select specific details to view in Details mode of a folder, for example if you have a documents folder, you can select to view author, owner, date created, etc, for a pictures folder, you can select items like date taken, camera used, dimensions.

However, you can only do this on a per folder basis, so for example, if you have a lot of subfolders under my pictures, you can't select multiple folders and choose what details that you want to be displayed for those folders.

Does anyone here know of either a third party program or a sample script (vbs or Windows script) that could modify the specific details settings on certain multiple folders at one time?



A:Specific Detail View Multiple Folders

You can make the details view the default for all folders (as I do).And you can still change the view of individual folders if you would like to...it's just that the default will be the details view.When you get to My Computer (in the following), change the view to Details before moving on.Start\My Computer\Tools\Folder Options\View...click Apply To All Folders.Louis

I recently switched back to Windows 7 from Windows 8.1 after having issues with my most commonly played game and everything is going pretty great. However, I just noticed something I'm fairly certain wasn't an issue when I used Windows 7 previously (and I know wasn't an issue in Windows 8.1).

This may not seem like a big deal to some people, but it is a grand annoyance to someone like myself who relies on the type sort feature quite often to find and weed out certain file types here and there. As you can see in the image, the .txt file blends right in the mix with the .xml files so sorting by type is more like sorting by name.

Is there any way to fix it and if so, how? As I said, I'm 99% certain I didn't have this issue last time I used Windows 7 (and I used it for years).

A:Detail view problem (type sort)

Looks like you installed Notepad++ which then associated .txt files with itself.

Look at Control Panel / Default Programs, Associate a filetype or protocol with a program. Scroll down to .txt and see what it's set to. Maybe change it back to plain Notepad?

Hi! A few weeks ago I bought a new Acer netbook with Windows 7 Starter on it, after six years of using, and getting very comfortable with, XP. Some things I like, some things I don't, but I figure I should get used to the coming thing, since XP won't be around forever.

There is one thing (at the moment) that I can't figure out in Win 7 though. In XP all my windows that are opened in detail view first have the file name, then the file size right next to it. In Win 7, all the detail windows default to having the file size column over on the far right, where it's hard to see and does me no good at all. I can drag the file size column over to where I want it, of course, but I have hundreds of folders and would not like to have to do this for all of them manually. I also would prefer to have all new folders default to having the file size right next to the file name.

Is there any way I can get Starter to change the column order for all the folders at once, as well as make it the default for new ones I create?

Thank you.

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.

There are several ways to change columns widths in detail view and hundreds of posts about making all folders keep that column width IF you make all folders open in detail view. Does anyone know of a way to save a default column width in detail view WITHOUT setting all folders to open in detail view?

A:Set default column width without changing all folders to detail view

I'm not sure what you are asking.
Surely column width only applies in Details mode.

You can:
Set all of the columns and their widths in Details mode
Change to View to something else (e.g. Large Icons)
Set your Folder Template

The Folder Template will remember the:
Chosen Columns and their widths
This means you can always "Sort by" or "Group by" the chosen columns without having to go into Details view.

I only use Details and Large Icons.
I'm not sure how the Tiles, List and Content views behave.

Using Windows XP Pro, sp3.

I use the folder's "Comments" detail, for all folders, but especially for my MP3 collection.

I would like to increase the length of this detail from the default of about 50 (I really haven't counted) to the max (probably 255).

This is more than likely a registry tweak, but I can't find a thing about it!

Any suggestions would be helpful.
Thanks for your time and suggestions in advance,

A:Folder "comments" Detail Size

I added a comment to one of my MP3 files...the max it would display was 79 characters...even though I entered 140. I haven't found anything about the maximum amount of characters allowed either. In testing...I entered the numbers 1 ->0 and at the end of each entry I used CTRL+ENTER to force a link break...Even with the line break, the comments still showed as 1 continuous line...so having a very long comment would cause the opened window to be extremely wide...to show the entire Comments column...and even then would probably not show the entire comment. As a safety concern, GBJim...I would not post an email address in posts, as this could lead to a lot of spammed messages.

I am confused. I want my Folders to be Tiles, and the files inside those folders to be viewed as Details. In one of my W7 machines, that's how it is. In another, whatever change I make to the folder view takes effect on the files, and vice versa.

This is what I want for the folders:

and inside it I want:

INSTEAD, if I have the folders as tiles, I get:

Well, if I change the view to this:

then the folders look like this:

How do I get each view to "stick" when I select it for that folder/file view? (This is one of those screaming in the night Windows issues. One machine does it with no intervention. It just works. The other machine does not, nor can I find any option or menu function to do so.)


A:How do I keep the Folder as Tile and files in it as Detail?

The area in the registry keys where Windows tries to keep track of these settings can fill up and/or get messed up.

The easiest solution is to remove those registry keys via these steps:
Folder View Settings - Reset All to Default

If you have a lot of objects (icons-shortcuts, files, folders) on your desktop and if those objects are arranged (as opposed to all being on the left), then carefully read the notes before doing those steps.

After the reset, set each folder with files to the Details view.
The first time that you open a folder, some info about that folder goes into those registry keys. If you rename or move a folder, the old info stays in those registry keys and more info is written to those keys for the new folder name/location. In the Details view, the width of each column is stored in those keys for each folder. It gets messy after years of use. There is a limit. Windows (file) Explorer gets flaky once the limit is reached.

I've never seen this before and I'm usually very good at finding the problem on Google and solving it myself. But I've searched quite deeply and used the search history here just to make sure but it seems I'm the only one with this issue:

Operating System: Windows 7
NOTE: I run Windows 7 in Classic View (Win 95/98 look)
Folder Browser: Explorer
Issue Last Noticed: Only today
Issue Details: I like to have my files free to arrange them as I please (i.e. not by date, name, size, etc. but by individual content and sometimes frequency of use), and not automated in any way, shape, or form. So unlike others I am not wanting every folder sorted by Name. But for some strange and odd reason, I right-click on the folder (as I've done for years) to "Sort By", and then to "More..." and at the top of the check boxes is "Name". It is checked.

When I click to un-check it, I only get the loud error-blip sound and it will not let me un-check it. I can click, check, and un-check every other option but "Name" seems to be set on some sort of default.

When I change the "Sort By" options, the folder lets me sort them by the options there, but then locks the folders in place. In attempt to drag a file around, the mouse gives me the "unavailable" cursor. Example: I can sort my files by Date, but then I cannot modify them in any way after that except by the list of options Sort By gives me.

I am new to Windows 7. When I used the search feature of Win XP I was able to sort files by subdirectory within the directory I was searching. When I search in Windows 7 the results are sorted by the smallest subdirectory within the directory.

For example I have a directory "2010" containing subdirectories by client name "Smith," "Jones" etc. Each client subdirectory contains 3 similarly named a subdirectories e.g. "letters" "pleadings" "miscellaneous." When I search, the folder detail displays as follows:
"pleadings(\\Network\shared\Client Accounts\2010\Smith)."

Since I am searching in the 2010 subdirectory the display should sort by the next largest subdirectory in the tree which would be the client names. Sorting by the smallest, repeating, subdirectory "pleadings" is of no use to me.

The question: is there a way to make Windows 7 search and sort by the next largest subdirectory within the directory that you are searching?

As with prior versions, in [Windows] Explorer's main window, you can enable hovering to select and single clicking to expand the folder (but that is a pain in the rear when working with files). Windows XP folder view nicely allowed single clicking the folder name to expand the folder. Was that removed from Windows 7? Looks like the only way to expand a folder in folder view is to either click on the small plus sign or to double click on the folder name.  Or is there a switch somewhere I am missing? Thanks.

You can use the performace utility in Win2K. When you click on the PLUS sign to add a counter, your computer name is specified (like \\BRAIN ), there you can add a different computer's name, like \\SERVER.

Then you will see all the counters available on the SERVER machine.

The two 9x computers can "see" each other in Network Neighborhood, and the Windows 2000 computer can "see" the others, but neither 9x computer can connect into the Win2k computer.

On the Windows 98 computer, I get a dialog box requesting a password to resource \\COMPUTERNAME\IPC$. However, I do not recall setting any IPC password, and the Administrator password does not work there.

The Windows 95 computer, however, simply tells me: "\\COMPUTERNAME is not accessible. Your password has expired."

How can I make the two Win9x computers view my shares on the Win2000 computer?

Thanks in advance.

1) Make sure that your Win9x machines and Win2K machine have the same workgroup name

2) Make sure the Win9x machines are logging in with the Client for Microsoft networks, and that they are using a username and password.

3) In win2K, create user accounts for the username and passwords used to log onto the Win9x machines (or, you could just log onto the Win9x machines with the same username and password you use to log onto the Win2K machine)

My laptop has a built in SD card reader.  I just installed Windows 7 x64 Ultimate Edition and have installed all available Window updates.
When I go to:
Control Panel -> Folder Options -> View "tab"
and uncheck the box for "Hide empty drives in the Computer folder", the SD card reader still does not appear when I go into the Computer folder.
I have also tried going into the registry:
to change:
from 1 to 0, but that does not work either.
Can someone please help me get my SD card reader to appear in the Computer folder even when there is no card inserted into it?

A:Not working: Folder Options -> View -> Hide empty drives in the Computer folder

The card readers on my desktop computer (one connected internally via a USB header on the motherboard), one on my monitor and one on my printer all work the way they should.  When "Hide empty drives in the Computer folder" is checked, none
of them are visible in the Computer folder.  When "Hide empty drives in the Computer folder" is unchecked, they all become visible.
The card reader in my laptop is connected internally via micro-USB, but it's different.  It does not actually appear in the Device Manager until a card is inserted into it.
That's probably why the "Hide empty drives in the Computer folder" does not work with my laptop's card reader.
