Now Windows 7 doesn't display Office 2010 properties RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi, I have installed a new version of Office 2010 (home-office) and Windows 7 has stopped showing the doc properties (like Subject, Categories, Content State...) in Details view and even in the Details Pane...

    Re-indexing didn't solved it...  Any idea of what's going on?

  • Hi Valma,

     

    Please check if the same document details can be displayed properly with older versions of Microsoft Office product installed. If so, you can post a thread for Office 2010 on this forum.

     

    Otherwise, please check if the issue occurs in other files such as music files to see if the details can be played properly.

     

    Also, please right click on the documents and then click Properties. Check if the property values in Details tab are correct.

     

    Regards,

    Linda

  • Hi Linda, 

    The same document details could be displayed properly even with the previous Office 2010 pro version I had installed and with the Beta. I could even see some pdf properties. 

    I can still see music, video and picture's properties but not Office or pdf. It all happened since installing the Office 2010 home version. 

    If I right click in the document and click Properties, the properties I refer to aren't displayed. They are displayed though if I open the document and press File /info. 

    It seems that I should have post this in the IT forum, so I'm going to post it there unless I receive an answer tonight here. Feel free to delete this post here if you want and can... 

    Regards, 

    Valma
