When I click on an image file, it shows the date taken at the bottom of the folder. How do I change it so that it shows date modified?

  • I doubt if this is possible, why not just add a column for that? – Tom Wijsman Aug 23 '11 at 20:04

It's not possible without writing a shell extension. Explorer is taking the data from the JPEg's metadata. Replacing that would be counter intuitive, thus requiring an exceptional solution.

  • But in previous Windows, it would just show date modified? It's rather annoying when the most recent file says 2007 simply because that was when the image was taken. – Sakib Aug 25 '11 at 11:56
