Display Attributes Column in Windows Explorer - Details View

By: Arie Slob

To show File Atributes in Windows Explorer, you can go to View > Folder Options select the View tab, and check Show file attributes in Detail View. Sometimes however, this option is not present. When you do not see the option to turn on this feature, you can turn this on using this registry hack:

  1. Start the Registry Editor
  2. Go to HKEY_CURRENT_USER \ Software \ Microsoft \ Windows \ CurrentVersion \ Explorer \ Advanced
  3. Double-click the entry ShowAttribCol and change the value from 0 to 1

    If the entry ShowAttribCol doesn't exist, you can create it by selecting Edit > New > DWORD Value from the Registy Editor's menu.

  4. Exit RegEdit and restart Windows Explorer
