In Windows 7, is it possible to set the file details you want to view on a top-level folder and then have that view cascade to all files in all subfolders, whether those subfolders already exist or are created later?
Here's my immediate situation: I want to see the Total Editing Time on all Word files contained within a folder and its subfolders.
As best I can tell, I must set the details within one folder and/or subfolder at a time (i.e., open the folder or subfolder that contains the files, and then set the details). [[ See the GIF I uploaded for a screenshot. ]]
I did see another discussion that suggested the only way to get a cascade is to mess with the registry key. But I remain hopeful there is a simpler way to do what I (and I'm sure a gazillion of my very best friends) want to do.
Also, is the solution or solutions for Win7 true for newer Windows?
