    you know the details bar at the top of an explorer window?

    in just one folder, none others, the bar will not show the details I choose, the only details that is there is "name"

    I believe this is a common issue but I do not believe it has been solved yet outside of using some shell program or other

    anyone have an insight into fixing this?

    thanx in advance

    Re: details have dissapeared in details bar

    fixed

    I had to hit "size columns to fit" and that brought it back

    here's an interesting side note

    this is a common problem in windows 7 and I have seen no solution except resetting folder defaults through the registry, supposedly even a repair install does not work

    so this worked for me and has not been mentioned anywhere I can find on the tubes, simple solution, I am wondering if it will work for others as well

    anyway, I retitled the thread to bring people searching for the solution to this site

    Maybe you can submit it as a bug to Microsoft? They might look into fixing it.
