Adjust "Name" "Kind" "Size" and "Date" at top of folder… (4 posts)

    Not a huge deal, but kind of annoying and I can't find anything about it in Fetch Help. Near the top of the folder are the columns Name---Kind---Size---Date. I know that if I click on one of those, my files will be arranged in that order, one way or another. The Date folder on the far right used to really be on the far right; now I can't drag it all the way to the right. Maybe this happened when I played around with the font size.
    Is there any way to arrange the Name Kind Size and Date columns? Can I get rid of the Kind column? Why can't I drag Date all the way to the right of the box? Thanks!

    Hi Chris,

    First, I suspect you need to make the one or more of your columns wider in order to fill up the empty space on the right of the window - you can either make the Date column wider, or make one of the other columns wider, which will push the Date column to the right.

    To make a column wider or narrower, move your cursor to one of the dividing lines between two columns in the column headings. Your cursor should change to a vertical line with arrows on either side when you've got it right. Then click and drag to make the column narrower or wider.

    Next, you can change the order the columns appear in the Fetch transfer window if you want. Click in the middle of a column heading, keep holding the mouse button down, and then drag the column from side to side to swap its position in the window.

    Finally, no, we're sorry, but you cannot completely remove a column from the transfer window.

    Please let us know if you have further questions.

    Thanks,

    Thanks. Is there any way to get rid of the exact time of day that the file was uploaded? I don't think that was on there before. I'm sorry---it this was on the help site, I couldn't find it.

    Hi Chris,

    It's not a problem, we're here to help. There are instructions in the help on how to show the modification time of day - that's usually the question we get. :-)

    The solution is to make the date column narrower until the times disappear - sorry, my advice to make it wider to fill the empty space is probably what made them to appear. To do this, move your cursor to the very right end of the "Date" column header - it will turn into a vertical line with one arrow (because the column can only be made narrower). Click and drag to narrow the column. Then go make some other column wider to fill up the empty space - the "Name" column is usually the most useful one to make wider, in my opinion.

    Please let us know if you have further questions.

    Thanks,
