Is there any way to show extended detail in the details pane ?

Question: Is there any way to show extended detail in the details pane ?

Hai Im new here..

Recently I was trying to add comments to movie folders so that i can keep a brief description about it when i click on it. It was easy to add comment then i had a bit trouble to get the comment getting displayed in the details pane...after playing with the registry for a while i got that solved as well.
Now I ended up with a problem where the comment being displayed eds with just some 3 or 4 words with the remaining given in dots (...) and I get a full display of it when i hover the mouse over it, which obviously goes way in 5 seconds or so.

So what i need is to find a way to expand what ever that is shown in the details pane so that it shows the entire content in consecutive lines without being restricted to one line (without having to hover a mouse)

You might get a picture of it if you have a small details pane on the right and make it show your processor details when you open thisPC.

How can I re-associate .mp4 files with video details displaying in the Details Pane? After installing the K-lite codecs pack, my mp4's all began displaying in the details pane as audio files (Album, Artist etc) and no longer displays the important video default details (size, frame height, bitrate etc). I assume it was because of incorrectly associating file types when installing the codecs (even though wmv's, avi's are still correct), so I uninstalled the codecs but the Details categories remain for typical audio files. I've exhausted The Google and I'm stumped... any help? (Win7, 32-bit with VLC as my default player) Thanks!

Question: Detail pane

Hi,

This is my first thread in this forum.

I have just upgraded Vista -> 7 and Windows Explorer is driving me crazy.
What I do is following:

1. I choose a folder i Navigation Pane and Detail Pane is only showing File name in a narrow column.
2. Then I customize the Detail Pane ... detail view, more columns, column width ... and so on
3. Drag the Name column so I can see all the columns
4. Fine ... everything looks OK
5. Close Window Explorer and restarts it again
6. The customization for the detail pane are there ... but the column witdth is so narrow that I only can see File name
7. I have to drag the column witdth every time to see the other colums ... very annoying

Answer:Detail pane

in seven,there's no more "remember folder view option" . I don't know why they removed it. which means every time you get to that folder,you need to change it again. and out.again.

however I came across some fix but I can't confirm if this is what you want

I just did a reinstall of XP Pro and am having trouble with video files being "in use" when trying to move/delete them (only a several second lag, but it is annoying me). It has to do with a preview being generated in the details pane in the bottom left corner of Explorer. I eventually figured out how to turn off the preview option on my last install but have forgotten how I did it. Under folder options I have "do not cache thumbnails" unchecked. Is this the setting I need to change? Or is it somewhere else? It seems to me I need an option to not show a preview in the details pane.

Thanks for any suggestions.
 

Answer:How to Turn of Thumbnails in Details Pane?

I haven't done an XP install, but I have had problems like yours. Here is how I fix them without reinstalling, in case it may help? (The instructions may be different for XP.)

Thumbnails are used as icons when the folder is in Thumbnail view. This is usually not the problem, since they are usually cached after the first time. I turn them off by getting the Properties window for that folder. (I just go to the parent folder and right-click on the folder there, then choose Properties.) Then in one of the tabs, I find the Enable thumbnail view option and uncheck it. But, again, this is probably not the problem.

The preview thumbnail (actually, the whole details pane) can be turned off by unchecking View as Web Page in the View menu in one folder. Or, you can turn it off for all folders by going to View menu > Folder Options > General tab > choose Custom, then click the Settings button and in the View Web Content in Folders section, choose Only for folders where I select "as Web Page" [View menu]

If I want the details pane, but not the preview, I edit the HTML of the window. I don't know if you want to try this, it can be confusing, but here's what I do, just in case:
I right-click on the detail pane (or you can use the View menu), and click Customize this Folder... then choose create or edit HTML document. This allows me to customize that details pane. To remove only the worst case files from the preview, I see if I can find "var w... Read more

You have this "problem" because ".aaa" is not a recognized file extension. For performance reasons, Windows does not look beyond the file extension to determine the type of the file, which is why when you rename ".exe" to ".aaa", you loose the display of its properties. And likewise renaming anything to ".exe" to try and find file properties is just looking for trouble.

Hi All. I have an Excel spreadsheet that allows users to select the filters they need in a pivot table to get counts of relevant records (originally built using slicers which I had to remove due to the users having older versions of Excel!) and then I have added a simple button macro to "export" the filtered records to a new sheet (basically the same as double clicking on the count).

The problem I have is that I need to show all fields in the pivot, i.e. I cant simply add another filter, but when the user presses the button, I only want to export one of the 'lists', whereas at the moment it exports a new sheet for every value.

Is there anyway of telling the macro which value it should export on button click?

Here is the macro.., (obviously copied from the internet!)

Sub MakeReports()
Dim c As Range
With ActiveSheet.PivotTables(1)
For Each c In .DataBodyRange.Resize(, 1)
c.ShowDetail = True
Next c
End With

End Sub

Failing that, would there be any way of renaming the new worksheets to match the titles in the pivot?

Many thanks in advance for your help

Is there any way to permanently remove or disable all of the various "views" in the Windows 7 Navigation Pane *except* for Details? If a subdirectory contains audio files I *never* want to see "Album" or "Artist" or any of the rest of that garbage. If the subdirectory contains an image file I *never* want to see a thumbnail of images. If I need more information about a file I'll right click on it and select Properties, thankyewverymuch!

In short, when I click anywhere in the left or right panel in the Navigation Pane I never want to see *ANYTHING* except the file name, type, size, and date modified. If it isn't a file (e.g. Network, etc.) just show me a computer or device name, not some massive image of a router or other waste of my time.

I have this problem with the vista details pane and I have not been able to find any solution. I have Windows Vista 32 bit Home Premium version. The problem is that:
1. My details pane is missing a lot of properties/tags . Only ones that are appearing are file date, file name, dated created.
2. When I go into a MP3 folder, same thing happens as I described in 1. Just the 4 tags appear and I don?t get any other tags that used to be there like artist name, rating, title, etc.
3. I cannot edit any Tag in the details pane. When everthing was working fine, I could go in the MP3 folder , I could edit the title, ratings etc. and Save it. But now I can?t do anything, the save button does not appear and the tags don?t go in edit mode.

Hello.

I've been trying to re-organize my photo collection. Previously, I had been using Windows Live Photo Gallery to tag my photos, and admittedly it was convenient. Recently, though, the program has gone on the fritz to where thumbnails aren't loading so it's harder to differentiate photos simply by the file name in cases where I have a lot of photos of the same group or folder. While I've tried a lot of troubleshooting to get the thumbnails to load, and would gladly take advice on that issue, in the meantime I'm trying to accomplish the same thing using the details pane in explorer.

When I highlight a photo right now, most file types load the date stamp, tags, rating, author(s) and comments properties in the details pane. However, I'd like to edit the people properties so I can tag individuals in the photos. I have not seen a way to easily do that short of using other software (such as Photo Gallery).

In Windows 8.1, I want to customize the properties displayed in the Details Pane for ALL of my MP3s . (That is, I do not mean removing/modifying the properties on an individual MP3/music file. I mean choosing what gets displayed in the Details Pane for all music files.)
In XP (which I love and miss), I do believe the Details Pane could be customized easily, but I see no way to do that in 8.1. For example, I want to display Artist, Album, Year, Track #, Size, and Duration ONLY. How do I remove Rating, Genre, Title, etc.
Also, can I remove the "breadcrumbs" (...) and have the full line displayed? In XP, everything was displayed. Now you have to hover over something to see it. How is that better?
I miss XP's file manager!

I can not change music's rating or other stuff from details pane. In local administrator user I can. Should I change my account type or any help?

Also the music is at external HDD

Answer:The Details pane - Can not modify Music's Rating and stuff

Check that your files haven't suddenly become "Read-only".

Also try running CHKDSK to check the drive.

After I've used one of my external HDDs at TAFE, my PC claims that it is "Read-only" and it takes several CHKDSK commands to fix the problem.
Of course after CHKDSK is finished, it says that there weren't any problems.

I want to make some specific changes to the default Preview Details string for picture files in Windows Explorer. I have found an excellent write-up on how to edit that string using regedit, but the author was only interested in the specific around music. In the attached picture, I show the file properties/attributes that I am interested in placing in the Detail Pane. The current edited string is shown below.

*System.Photo.PeopleNames;*System.Contact.Location;*System.Contact.StateOrProvince;
*System.Contact.Country;System.Comment;*System.DateCreated;*System.DateModified;

The problem I see is that Vista shows the very 1st second of video, while Windows 7 shows the 4th. That's why many of the video previews on the details pane show a black screen on vista instead of actual video.

Hi, I just re-installed windows 7 on my desktop pc and have a question about the settings of the details pane in windows explorer (the one that appears and the bottom when you select a file). Previously when I selected video files (.mp4, .avi and .mkv) I would get the details at the bottom, the video frame width and height, size of file etc.. but since I reinstalled I don't get these details when I select video files. I know its only a small problem but I work with video files a lot and have gotten used to seeing the resolution of files without having to open them. Does anyone know how I can get the details pane to show these details again? At the moment it only displays the video size, name and state.

Here is a screen-shot of the details pane for a selected .mkv video file on my laptop, this is what I want it to display on my pc.

I am trying to tidy up my hard drives and seem to have a lot of duplication, some intentionally as backups but others not. I had been using Ultra Explorer to do this as I could look at 2 or more drives at the same time in dual-pane view and it gave you folder sizes which Windows Explorer doesn't do. Unfortunately, when I viewed my music folder in Ultra Explorer it gives some strange results, saying there is no content in a folder when I know it is there and I can no longer trust it.

Please can anyone recommend software which shows the breakdown of files and folders and allows you to do this in dual-pane view. I have tried Folder View by MindGems but this doesn't seem to have a dual-pane view. I am running Vista.

The arrows/+ signs should show up when you move the mouse over the navigation pane. When you move the mouse over the right pane, they disappear. I guess the idea is that if the mouse isn't nearby they aren't of much use. Sorry, but I don't know of a way to change the behavior.

There seems to be a minimum size which is pre-defined, you cannot make it smaller. The preview and details pane size is set by the DetailsContainerSizer binary value in the Registry key:

With Windows 8, Windows Explorer's status bar has taken a major step back. From Windows 95 to Windows XP - Explorer has had this very useful STATUS BAR that displayed very useful information at a glance. 

In Windows Vista, two features were removed:
 - Total size of ALL files
in a folder on the status bar without selecting them all, then excluding folders
 - Tooltip information of single selected file



Classic Shell fixed that.

In Windows 7, again three features were removed:
 - Free disk space on any volume at the current location
-  Computer zone
-  Total size of selected files
(not total size of all files, but selected files)



Classic Shell fixed it again.

In Windows 8, again these features are removed and the only feature left now is total number of items, items selected and size of selected items (but only up to 99 files)


I was told this info was removed for performance reasons because calculating size is computationally intensive or some bullshit reason like this but that is unacceptable.
Having the status bar show this info from Windows 95 to Windows XP didn't make these Windows versions unacceptably slow or unusable, this is a feature power users need all the time. At most,
Microsoft should just disable this info by default but not take it out.

Hello everyone!

There's a thing that puzzles me: I have 3 installations of Win7 Home Premium on 3 different machines, one on a self-built desktop, one on a Sony Vaio and one on a HP Pavillion. Plus a fourth installation of Win7 Starter on a little Asus EeePC.

I have searched the web extensively, but I can't find one single instance of this strange behaviour mentioned. It seems I am the only one in the world to see this, or I am a very bad searcher.

You must do an awful lot of copying of awfully big files because most of what I do goes so fast that you don't even get to see the dialog! And when it does take a little longer I've usually got better things to do than sit and stare at it especially as all it tells me most of the time is that it's still "calculating".

I doubt that this is possible through the registry (though I will have a delve around if I get the time) which probably means it's not possible period. I guess you'd have to use a third party utility to do your file management if you were that determined.
