Windows Explorer tips

June 16, 2008

Tip 1: Do you use a column (Details) view in Windows Explorer? Did you know that you can tell Windows which columns to show, and that you can rearrange the order of those columns to suit how you work? To specify which columns to display, right-click on a column heading then either choose a heading from the list, or click More to open the Choose Details window. This window lists all available headings, and allows you to move headings up and down (equivalent to left to right display). You can also set the width of each column.

Tip 2: When a folder in Windows Explorer is open, you can press the Backspace key to open the folder one level higher.
