When you are using a details layout view for a folder, all items in the folder will be displayed by details in columns.

You can select the details you want to display for the items in a folder.

This tutorial will show you how to add and remove columns in a folder for your account in Windows 11 and Windows 10.


Here's How:

1 Open File Explorer (Win+E).

2 Navigate to and open the folder you want to add and remove columns for.

3 Right click or press and hold anywhere on a column title bar. (see screenshot below step 4)

4 Check (add) or uncheck (remove) details you want for columns in this specific folder. (see screenshot below)

The available details will vary depending on the template used to optimize the folder with.
