Changing folder details

by Deanmc / July 6, 2004 9:20 PM PDT

I have a particular folder I access every day and it shows; file name, size and date. About every second time I access it the date is missing. I put it back and it is ok for a while until dropping off again. This has only started recently. Can anyone assist as to why this may be?

It's just one of the little "amnesia" tricks of XP. Not a whole lot you can do about it but hope MS will fix it in some future version of Windows.

Do you mean the folder details at right click>Properties ? Happens to one particular folder only ?

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
