  • Question

  • In XP you could view the Summary tab of a file but this is not an available tab in Windows 7. How can I see the information held in the XP Summary tab view?

  • Hi,

    As mentioned in the first reply, the "summary" tab is similiar to the "details" option in Windows 7, some metadata can also be edited in Windows 7 details, such as the snapshot below:

  • If it's in the document's metadata in the first place, most of the info on the XP Summary tab (Title, Subject, Tags, Categories, etc.) should show up on the Details tab in Windows 7.  If the metadata fields aren't there, the Details tab omits listing them.
