    Adding Comments To Files In Files Explorer In Windows 10


    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!

    W7 Ultimate SP1 (64 bit), LM 19.2 MATE (64 bit), W10 Home 1703 (64 bit), W10 Pro 1703 (64 bit) VM

    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.
