    I turned last Date accessed on but it is showing me accessing the file just by opening the folder not by actually viewing the file. How do I fix this to only show if I click the file itself?

    actually it appears its only doing this the first time I open a folder after I turned on last date accessed in cmd.

    It kind of annoying that it is changing all my last date accessed to today or whenever I first open the folder rather then first time I view the file. Anyway to change this?

    hmm I keep doing more testing and the more its just plain not working. I just used the file and it is still showing last date accessed as the time when I opened folder and didn't even view the file 20mins earlier
