    File properties comments deleted

    In Windows Explorer (Windows 7) I had added comments to a number of files in the Comments Tags of properties. All these comments have disappeared in Windows 10. Other info I added in other tags has remained.

    Did you add Comments to the row headings?

    Right click on Name heading, select More. Scroll down and check Comments.

    Does that show them?

    No. I accessed the comments heading before I sent my original post. It's there, but now it's empty
