propsys.dll contains all the column definitions as XML; by simply opening the DLL with a hex editor and searching for System.FileExtension you should find an element like the following: <propertyDescription name="System.FileExtension" formatID="{E4F10A3C-49E6-405D-8288-A23BD4EEAA6C}" propID="100"> <searchInfo ...

I tried every single suggested solution and none of them worked. Finally, I found that my antivirus quarantine contains files that were previously in these reappearing folders. Every time the antivirus has its virus definitions updated, it recreates these folders again! I cleaned the quarantine, hence the disappearance of these folders forever.

Using Windows 10 I had the same problem when I transferred a folder from to my SSD drive to an SDLC card. From the card I could not sort the photos by "Date Taken"- could not even find a possibility of sorting by Date Taken when reading from the card. Instead of installing another app I played around and by transferring the pics from the SDLC card ...

I adjusted your script to Powershell: $hide = (Get-ItemProperty -path $USERKEYPATH\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Advanced).Hidden If ($hide -eq 0) { Set-ItemProperty -Path $USERKEYPATH\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Advanced -Name Hidden -Value "1" } IF ($hide -eq 1) { Set-ItemProperty -Path $...

I've found a solution using .NET. I searched and searched for the ability to list previous versions programmatically, but could not find a solution for viewing previous versions on an SMB / CIFS share. Volrest, vssadmin, alphaVss, etc. Even win32_shadowCopy failed because our target machines are netapps. Nothing worked. Then I found this post that says they ...

One is metadata for the file and is dependent on the file type supporting that metadata, and the other notes who has primary security rights over the file.

You need two drivers, which is not well documented when you just use some random search engine results or the microsoft store. This link helps out: https://www.windowscentral.com/how-open-heic-and-hevc-files-windows-10s-photos-app. The following steps are borrowed from this guide, I recommend going there instead.

I think the Application is taking the file name as an argument. Edit Target box like: "VirusTotal.exe full path" %1 Or you can download and use AutoHotKey for this: ^+V::Run VirusTotal.exePath

This issue only occurs on one account on the computer. The administrator account does not have the issue. This is conclusive and why the efforts you listed did not work. This is a damage to the User's Windows User Profile. You need to save the documents in the profile, make a new Windows Profile and then delete the damaged one. If you need to use the same ...

No, it's not possible to turn it on. The easiest way to view folder size is to just hover your mouse over the folder, or go to folder Properties. If you want it to be displayed in list view, you will have to download other software like TreeSize.

Look in Control Panel, Security and Maintenance, and pull down Maintenance. You will likely see multiple "Explorer stopped working" errors. I have seen this myself.

In Windows Explorer and most web browsers, hit Alt-D to select the path in the address bar then Ctrl-C to copy. This Alt-D keyboard accelerator recalls the URL bar in Internet Explorer 6 and earlier, which was preceded by the word "Address" with an underlined "d":

You are misunderstanding what Rename actually means. Rename means changing the name or extension of a certain file or folder. What you trying to do is a move operation. You have to first copy the PDF file to the same folder on D drive to C drive. Then you have to delete the file in D drive. Then the PDF will exist in the folder on C drive. Like this you can ...

Technically you can delete them but they will probably damage your windows installation and it stop working properly. The safe way would be: for system volume information, use Disk Cleanup -> Clean up system files also reduce the size of your system restore allocated space and delete some older restore points for AppData, check what programs use a lot of ...

You can delete items inside of the AppData folder if they are no longer used, but you cannot delete the AppData folder in it's entirety safely. My advice would be to use a program such as CCleaner, and the built-in Disk Cleanup utility.

You can delete some files inside them! Since your steam directory is quite big, I'm guessing that some files in your AppData\Local are savegame files, which can take up a lot of space over time. You should check other folders inside one by one, see if you can safely delete anything else ... but this has to be done manually. Files in AppData\Roaming are ...

After much research, Microsoft offers another app in the Microsoft Store called "HEVC Video Extensions". That second extension has solved the problem. Don't be fooled by the "Video" part in the name. Once installed : Explorer shows previews for HEIC pictures, the Photos app loads them, and even IrfanView now loads them properly. Sad part :...

Probably not an answer you're looking for, but still ... If you're fond of command line, you can use robocopy on windows. It's much faster. In general, you'll get more performance out of your disk when using larger allocation unit sizes (64K instead of 4K for example) for larger files. While OS disks are okay with 4K allocation size, a disk for videos/media/...

No one but Microsoft can modify Windows Explorer. Your only option is to use a third-party file manager. See a list of such alternatives with reviews in the article Best Free File Manager. This list doesn't contain one of my favorites : Altap Salamander Freeware.

In case you are using the Skype App, removing the context menu item is trickier. One way is to delete DllPath under HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\PackagedCom\Package\Microsoft.SkypeApp_15.61.100.0_x86__kzf8qxf38zg5c\Class\{776DBC8D-7347-478C-8D71-791E12EF49D8} However updates to the app will probably restore this.
