I want to have the last access date listed for all folders in XP Home SP3.
I can do this using one of the methods listed in the closed topic
which includes the reply copied below.
But how do I apply this method to all folders, as in the many subfolders in some larger folders?
Using the method below works only for the folder being specified. To do this for all folders and subfolders would take hours.

In Explorer/My Computer:
Click View | Details
Click View | Choose Details...
Place a check mark in front of Date Accessed
Or, from a Command Prompt, navigate to the folder containing the file
Type Dir /TA Filename.ext
or from any folder type the complete path to the file:
Dir /TA "D:\My Folder\Filename.ext"
To sort files in a folder by date accessed:
Dir /TA /OD

Don't forget to use quotes if the filename contains spaces

Hiya Robert.

At the top of any open folder and after making any changes you want to, go into the Tools drop-down menu and click Folder Options. Now click the View tab and at the top, there`s a button to `Apply to All Folders`. Is that what you`re looking for ?
