    File Explorer Date column - whiich date is it?

    The column heading in Win 10 File Explorer is 'Date'. But which one?

    I've always been used in XP to the default being 'Date modified', but it seems that here it's Date created? Several re-saves have left 'Date' unchanged.

    I don't know (I came straight to Win 10 from 15 years with XP) but see my cross-posted thread here:
