Windows 10: how do I add text under the COMMENT column in File Explorer?
how do I add text under the COMMENT column in File Explorer?
WIndows allows me to add a column called COMMENT in the File Explorer yet it is unclear how I can actually add my personal text next to a file or folder to describe its contents.
If this cannot be done then what is the purpose of the COMMENT column in File Explorer?!?
The fields that are available for change depend on the file type.
(So, the JPEG file here will have teh "Comments" field available, while PNG will not. )
The purpose of that column is to display Comment field from the metadata stored inside the file. And in order for it to be available the file format must support metadata with Comment field in it. For example, EXIF metadata used in image files has Comment field.
If some file format does not have metadata in it (or has no Comment field), then this column will always be empty for such files.
Thanks, Nostromov - that does clear things up.
Do you know where I may find the list of file types that allows for COMMENTS?
