I know how to add it via the context menu, but it never seems to be a permanent option. I would like it to show in all folders without having to continually go back through and add it.

How can I make Windows Explorer show file modified date instead of created date?

I've looked at this question, so I assume it is the same as going through the context menu seen by right clicking inside the folder.

Try this:

  1. Make an Explorer window look like you want.
  2. Folder context menu (Alt+T), Tools » Folder Options » View tab » "Apply to all folders"
