Making files in subfolders sort by "Date" or "Date Taken" by default?

Q: Making files in subfolders sort by "Date" or "Date Taken" by default?

(Running Windows 7 Professional x64 SP1)
I'm a professional photographer and have recently begun shooting with two cameras simultaneously at events. They use different file names to avoid duplicate names/confusion, i.e. IMG_175000 and XMG_175000. Often times I'll take a photo with one camera and then take a photo immediately after it with the other camera and I'd like both of these images to be organized in the same subfolder and shown sequentially, but by default Windows Explorer lists all the "XMG_######" photos at the end and the IMG_###### photos at the beginning. I can manually sort each individual folder by going to "Sort by - Date" or even better, selecting "Sort by - More... and putting a check mark next to "Date Taken" so that it shows up in the Sort options (which it doesn't automatically) and then sorting by Date Taken, but since I'm dealing with hundreds of subfolders with hundreds of thousands of photo and video files I'd like a way to do this for all the files in these subfolders that isn't manual.

Is there a way to make Windows Explorer automatically arrange every file (both image and movie files) inside the various subfolders inside one root folder by Date or Date Taken instead of automatically always sorting them by name?

Thanks in advance!

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.)

Hello XMGING, and welcome to Seven Forums.

If you like, you could set a folder how you like it, then use the method in the tutorial below to apply it to all folders that use the same folder template.

Hello,

I'm hoping someone can help me. I'm using Outlook 2003. I'm designing a new Contacts screen, which better suits the needs of my business.

I have been able to figure out how to everything except for this:

How to I design the "date" and "dollar amount" field values to default to blank/empty instead of defaulting to the word "None" in the case of the "date" field and "$0.00" in the case of the "dollar amount" field?

Any help or direction would be greatly appreciated!

Hello there & Happy New Year.

I have encountered this particular inconvenience on the 2nd day of 2012 while i was transfering photos and files into my PC with Win7.

In my Win7 PC, all files/folders created or modified within Dec'2011 and earlier are now all grouped under as "A Long Time Ago". This happens when I changed the folder to be "Group by Date" or "Group by Date Modified" with a combo of "Sort by type". I tried sorting in different ways of view to see if I can get it back to what it should be. Then i realised even folder newly created on 25 Dec 2011 is also grouped as "A Long Time Ago" too. I am not sure if this is an intended feature.

The only helpful part is that i will still see the newer files in chronological order if I sort by date modified on top of group by date modified.

I have been using this setting for folder view even for Win XP. As for Win XP, i will get "Yesterday", "Last Week", "Last Month", "Last Year", "Two Years Ago" and ultimately the whole chunk of much older files under "A Long Time Ago". Such perfect chronological order.

I tried to google for a while and not much of returns to this issue I am having. Perhaps majority of people does not group their files/folders in such way. But for me, I like the way how it was displayed that I know i have edited/created/moved whichever files/folders last year, the previous month or ... Read more

Hi. I'm thinking about repairing Windows 7Home Premium 32bit with the DVD, because of BSOD, but I hesitate.

I first need to know if the backup folder called "Windows.old" will be a COPY (keeps Date Modified but updates Date Created) or a CUT (simply moves all folders to an other, thus doesn't change Date Created). Thanks!
So of course, only those who have ever reinstalled Windows 7 may know the answer. If you don't know but have reinstalled Windows 7 at least once, please spare 30 seconds to check, simply find a file like a picture or music that you had before the reinstall, and see in the bottom bar of explorer if its Date Created is the original or the reinstall date. You can also click Display tab in Explorer, then Sort by > Others > check "Date Created", > OK > Click display again > Sort by > Date Created. Don't mistake with Date Modified, I know the original Date Modified is kept upon copying, but it will update if you modify the file obviously. Please be honest and double check, losing 5.9 years old dates of my past would be heartbreaking, like mixing the pages of my diary!

Date Created is very important to me (and is underrated because it's not the default sorting option unlike Name/Type/Date Modified) because my computer is 5.9 years old, now has thousands of files and folders and it's easy to find them back and organize them with Date Created sorting if I didn't write tags or description in the file name.

I think what happened. Sunday night began a manual backup by trying to select entire My Docs and copy to laptop DVD R/W drive disk. Computer said it would take 2 days so 35 mins in I cancelled. It said there was a large set of temp files and I could retain or remove, I removed.

Went to bed.

Next day 11:04 am ran a malware prgm called CacheCleaner. Have run it 1000+ times and no issue this time.

Few days later go to access Quicken - no can do. File is damaged. Went to open my budget file in excel, says" file is in a different format than specified by the file extension. ..." Open it anyways, its completely empty. Go to open a MS word doc, cannot open,says there are problems with the contents. PDF problems too.

Every file has been mysteriously updated Date Modified to 1/4/2010 11:04am. None will open. Any file not dated 1/4/2010 11:04am opens fine.

Was there some temp pointer type file created during my aborted backup operation that was then deleted when I emptied my temp files etc when I ran Cache Cleaner.
This is horribly impactful b/c my last backup is old. Please help if you can.....

Ok I have a problem here. I have lots and lots of favorite files on Internet Explorer. Whenever I want to reference one of those favorite files, I go to my favorites folder in the hard drive and find a specific favorite file throught the date modified tab. I find it easier to find it that way than to find it through the name of the file.

And here comes the problem; I tried to back up my pc, but I aborted the operation because an issue occured. I then went to my favorite folder and somehow all of my "favorites" files now have the same modifeied date. Now I am having a very difficult time finding a "favorites" file that I want to open.

I am wondering if you can undo a modified date to its original date creation? I know, it's an uncommon situation, but it is somehow affecting me!

Then the file that was modified second, should get copied second.

The two new columns appear, but the format of the "Duration" column appears to be "hours:minutes", so I see "00:04" or "00:03" for most .mp3's, when what I want to see is 'hours:minutes:seconds", e.g. "00:03:45".

This also happens for video files (.avi files), e.g. all my episodes of "Heroes" (sad, I know) have a duration of "00:42" instead of "00:42:xx".

For some reason, my "Recycle Bin" will not display the files within it with the correct filters while in the "Details" view.

For example, I have the "View" set to "Details", and the two columns I have showing are "Name" and "Type", with "Name" selected as the preferred sort order.

With those settings in place, the "Recycle Bin" is not displaying the files in the correct order.I am not sure of the order that it is displaying them, as I can't pick-up on any pattern.

My office just upgraded, and I can no longer use Windows XP. On this system, I was able to add a separate taskbar to facilitate quick access to commonly-browsed folder locations on our vast network, and another one expedited the launching of useful programs and lists. Each task on each taskbar was represented with a big custom icon to save eye strain. I had them installed in opposite vertical margins, and they were set on auto-hide to keep them out of the way when not being used. Just move your mouse pointer to the left or right margin, and BAM! Sorry for the cliche, but I really got used to the convenience of what I had set up, and I just don't think I can be as efficient without anything comparable.

Now there appears to be nothing comparable in the Windows 7 GUI, and it's making me sick with rage! I see only the option to put a "toolbar" on an existing "taskbar", and no option to create any additional taskbars! This cramps up your one-and-only taskbar, plus the tiny toolbar access buttons require way too much precision for anything that's supposed to be quick. When you've figured out how to bring up that ridiculous button, the list that it yields is small enough to cause painful eyestrain - nothing efficient, much less cool about this at all! I have seen customization options in other OS GUIs that may have resolved some of these issues, but I see none such in W7.

Hello,

I had Windows Update automatic checking for updates disabled, (with the necessary services for Windows update enabled). The last update was sometime back in February of 2016.

After manually activating Windows Update Windows Update was still running after 30 minutes. I then quit Windows Update and was going to wait till a later time to activate again.

However, after running some system cleaners I tried to activate Windows Update which produced an error message. IIRC the error message indicated a program and parameter was required to run Windows Update.

Current Windows Vista WindowsUpdateagent Version is 7.6.7600.256 (Vista x64).

Quite a while back I manually fixed Windows Update after it stopped working and has been working correctly up to now.

This time instead of a manual fix I tried to use MS fix-it program, However MS's current link to download the Fix-it program is not an exe file but a .cab file, uncertain why MS currently has a link to a .cab file instead of an .exe file?

Anyway instead of attempting a manual fix I found a MS windows update agent installation for Vista 64-Bit. After re-installation using the Windows Vista x64, windowsupdate exe file version 3.7.xxx Windows Update now displays a window with options stating that "Windows is up to date".

I double-click and get "search" instead of "open"--only when I click a disk, like Hard Drive C: or Floppy A: or CD F: and so on.

It didn't used to do this, so I must've inadvertently changed some setting somewhere, but darned if I can find it now.

Any ideas?

It seems that no matter how I set this, after the next start-up it reverts to "15 minutes".  What registry key controls this?

When I right click on start, explore, then scroll down to "Temporary Internet Files", then click on the + sign I always have "Contents of IE 5",which I think is normal, but occasionally there is another + sign that has up to 5 folders, for example " YRKV0NYN". What are these files and should I be concerned that they are some sort of spy ware or somthing? They do go away when I empty my cache or maually delete them, but every time I open IE 5 and surf they reappear.
Any insight would be great. Thanks

Hello,

In Microsoft Excel 2003, I have a column that has dates listed in this format: '01.01.2008', rather than, say, '01/01/2008'. This format is a requirement.

In the column that contains these dates, I have set each cell to have a date format to them as well as a custom setting that replaced the "/" with a ".". The problem, however, is that it can now no longer sort the dates correctly.

Is anyone able to tell me how I can modify or correct this so that I can have the dates listed in the '01.01.2008' format and still sort them as I normally would?

Thank you in advance!

Hello, I've been noticing this over the years. When Daylight Saving Time occurs (whichever one, moving the clock forward 1 hour or moving it backward 1 hour), ALL my files' "Date Modified" detail move forward or backward 1 hour.

For example, I have a document file called asdf.docx and its Date Modified detail is: 9/26/2015 4:00 PM
When Daylight Saving Time comes around to move the clock forward 1 hour, that file's Date Modified is now 9/26/2015 5:00 PM. That's not correct, it should stay at 4:00 PM. What the hell is happening?

what software is this show done with and is there some thing out there that can be bought by the general public? I love the little animations that flash over the faces and screen

I do lots of kids videos and i edit with vegas 7

is adobe aftereffects the software that can do this?

any advice would be greatly appreciated!!
 

A:Looking for cool video software kinda like the one used on the "blind date show"

After Effects could do it, though it would be easier in Cinema4D or Maya. It would, in any case, take a long time (at least a week).

Hello - strange problem one of our users is having - when she picks up a draft email (she has previously prepared) then sends it, the email is recieved with the draft date, instead of the sending date. This means that the recipient cant see the new message (they will find it in listed as being recieved on the "draft" date). I have been unable to duplicate this error! Has anyone heard of this happening?
(Outlook 2007/Exchange 2007)
Any help very welcome!

We implemented ATA beginning on 3/15/2016 with two Gateways and one Central Server.  We've discovered that a few servers that are doing LDAP simple bind, which we've resolved by enabling LDAPS.  We have a server that's waiting on the Vendor to
provide a patch, so this single server continues to alert periodically. 
In the ATA error alert, "services exposing account credentials", the "export" function appears to have stopped updating the export.   The web-view shows current events (4/1/16), but the "export to excel" stops at 3/23/2016
in repeated attempts. The similar error (& cause), "sensitive account credentials exposed", is working correctly in its exports.  The system reports "Hooray, system is health!"  Servers have been rebooted, Webpages refreshed,
services restarted, etc...  
Any ideas?
Thanks,

I was given an HP laptop with vista and it is very slow to start up. I was uninstalling some programs and I sort by date so I can see the crap that was recently installed... the "installed on" date was there and now its not. It shows name and size but date is gone now. Anyone know why it went away and how to get it back? It may seem stupid but I like to know the date so I don't accidently uninstall anything that was installed by HP and may be essential.

Also any advice or programs on how to start up faster... I have run virus scan with avast, ran spybot, deleted startup entries, cleanup, defrag. Anything else I can do?

Thanks!

A:Uninstall a program doesn't show "installed on" date

hello negan1234,

Most of the programs installed by HP are not essential, and usually just hog system resources... If you want help deciding what to install and what not to, you can ask and we will gladly help.

As for the date... I just looked at my Programs and Features snap in and it doesn't show the install date for all of the programs. Some are blank.

Are all of yours blank?

I've found a strange situation where the directory field "Date Created" does not change after a copy/paste using Windows Explorer.

Here's the scenario:

1) Image files are written to a folder on the hard drive from an SD card.

2) "Date Modified" shows the time/date the photo was taken, as written by the camera. "Date Created" is the time/date the photos were copied from the SD card to the folder on the hard drive.

3) A file is opened from this folder into a photo editor and modified.

4) The modified image is written to a DIFFERENT folder.

5) On the new/modified image, "Date Modified" is still the original time/date the photo was taken. "Date Created" is now the time/date the new image file was written by the photo editor.

6) I now have two different image files in two different folders. One (A) is the original, the other (B) is a modified copy.

7) "Date Modified" on "A" and "B" are the same. "Date Created" on "A" and "B" is different.

8) The modified image is copied to the image in the original folder using Copy/Paste operation Windows Explorer. The "overwrite" warning clearly shows the file has changed in size. A "Yes" indication is given. The file copies.

9) The file in the original folder now shows the new size.

10) After I have performed the copy operation, I find the the "Date Created" field HAS NOT CHANGED (it stil... Read more

I just installed Windows 7 (Pro 64bit) on my desktop and ran W.E.T. to transfer my files from my Vista installation. The files have maintained their modified date/timestamp, but the folders' modified-date have all been reset to the current date (actually not quite all of them - empty folders have retained their original date - ?!?)

This would be a serious problem for me as I almost always sort folders by modified date to determine which ones are newest and most relevant. Is there a way to make Easy Transfer keep the original date on folders as well as files?

thanks for any help you can offer...

A:"easy transfer" resets folder modified date

Welcome
Have not heard that one before.

Just guessing,now.
Go to a folder
Right click
Restore previous version

Make sure the original is backed up, just in case
Dont know of a way to make Easy Transfer change behaviour. Be careful with easy transfer, it has been known not to be reliable. Be sure you back up before transfers.
Good Luck

I'm using Windows 7 Ultimate x86 and recently, my browser is no longer showing the websites I've visited by date. It will only show Computer and the local files I've accessed. I've attached an image for you to better understand.

Hi Vendetta

My name is Mohammed from DELL media outreach team

In response to you recent query, by any chance did you delete browsing history recently or reset IE or else please check whether you have made a check mark on the delete browsing history option. You can check that by going in to IE then select Tools->Internet option->in general tab window make sure delete browsing history radio button is unchecked, if not uncheck the option close the browser then try checking the history after visiting any website .Check whether this helps

Thanks & Regards
