    Change "calculating" message when copying or moving

    Hello, when copying large or lots of files, windows will just say calculating until it finally figures out how long it might take.
    Does anyone know how to replace the "calculating" messsage with something else?
    I'd like it to be more like older windows versions, so it could just say hours or days instead of calculating. Silly I know :)

    I don't believe that this is something that can be changed, at least not without some sort of 3rd party tool or File Explorer replacement.

    If someone knows differently, please correct me.

    You can expand the copy window by clicking the details arrow to see the estimated time it will take.
