Comments unavailable in Windows 7
Posted on 2010-09-16
We recently upgraded a user from Windows XP Professional to Windows 7 Ultimate. Using XP, this user was adding Comments in the Details tab of the file properties. The files that he was using Comments on are plain text files. I have read a few articles that suggest Windows 7 doesn’t support Comments on non-media or non-MS Office files. Comments can still be added and viewed in these types of files in Windows 7. Is there a registry edit or system setting that can be changed to view these comments?
