    Adding Comments To Files In Files Explorer In Windows 10


    Hi.

    It appears that Windows 10 may have done away with the ability to add comments to files/folders in File Explorer. There used to be an option in the details tab under properties but I don't seem to be able to find it. The option to checkbox comments as a column to add to file explorer, there seems like there is no way to create a comment.

    Any feedback appreciated. Thanks!

    Not all file types have comments in Windows.

    I just created a jpg on my W10 Home laptop.
    It had the same options in its "Properties" window as W7 does.
    I could add a comment to it.

    Maybe your system has a glitch or corrupted system file.
