Windows 10: Missing data from Programs and Features Solved

    Missing data from Programs and Features


    Some genius from Microsoft Office 365 support did something in my control panel having to do with mail setup and user accounts to try and fix my Office 365 install. <dident work BTW I found the solution on my own>

    After he did this almost every time I open Programs And Features to see what's installed and when the screen is missing some of the data. The program names are there, and the size for most of them, which I know some programs in there just don't show a size correctly. But the major item missing that is driving me nuts is the install date is missing for every program in there.

    Sometimes it will appear when I open Programs and Features but for the life of me I can't think of what random element is occuring that is making the install dates reappear. I have tried everything I can think of but there really isn't much info on the web about this happening to people, let alone what could be causing it.

    Any ideas to get this data back and get it to stay would be welcome. I am attaching a screenshot of what my window looks like right now.

    Thank You

    The header seems strange to me. You have "Type" , "Length", "Date" which I don't have and cannot set them to show. However, to show extra column(s), right click on the header and put a tick mark on the column(s) that you want to show, see screen shot:

    You are exactly right. Somehow that setting of what columns show up on the page is getting reset to a default explorer view for some reason. Once I found the right columns to show, all the info is still there. "Date" confused me because I dident remember there was another option that showed "Installed On"

    Thank you for the fast reply and easy solution. I guess my brain just dident realize even in a system window like that the columns could be adjusted.
