I would like to know how to view a files "Custom Properties" in Windows Explorer detail view.

So in Windows Explorer in detail view you have the standard columns Name, Size, Type, Date Modified.  I would then like to see a new column that shows the custom Property of the file if it has one.

If you switch to detailed view (View -> Details) then you can right click in the column "Name" for example. Then click "more" which is in the bottom of the drop down list. Now you can choose between alot of different columns, like author, attributes, status etc...

I think its what your looking for? Hope it helps.

Thanks but this is not what I am looking for, I need to display a custom property that I have set up.

If you create say and excel file, right click, Properties, Custom, Add say "MyTest", I need to see "MyTest" as a Column header in Windows Exploerer

Thanks
