    Replace Date column with Date Modified

    I had a lot of help with this last year and from re-reading my discussions, particularly with Keith, I’m sure I succeeded to a great extent. But, whatever detailed hacks I made, they were not permanent.Replace 'Date' with 'Date Modified'

    I simply want to ensure that when I open either an Explorer folder or an Open or Save As browse window then instead of a column called Date I get Date Modified. Permanently. Is there still no truly simple way to achieve that so it survives reboots and Win 10 updates please?

    Also, can anyone explain why this obscure ‘Date’ column replaced ‘Date Modified’ anyway? And how is ‘Date’ defined!

    Thanks Dalchina, that was a clear explanation of 'Date' from SuperUser. But still wish I could revert to my familiar format using Date Modified, ideally without using Powershell scripts that don't have a long life.

    In File Explorer I can right-click a column heading and get a list of choices with Date Modified on it which by default appears when creating a New, Folder. If I click the More at the bottom of that list I find several choices about date with Date [by itself] being the first, Date Modified not there since it's already in use.

    Another point, File Explorer windows will show different column headings based upon the content of the Folders being viewed, e.g. Music will be different from Pictures, etc.

    And may be necessary to click the View tab then Options then the resulting View tab and choose Apply to all Folders although it may not always work as desired, I use that to show Details in most all instances of File Explorer.
