Unlike Windows Explorer, FreeCommander does not support adding column headings on the fly or shifting the column sequence by dragging and dropping. Hence, one of the most important features in FreeCommander is the ability to create Custom Columns.
This feature makes it possible to customise the details display mode so that it only shows the most important and relevant information and that in an order you are comfortable with. As in Windows Explorer, you can then sort the files by clicking on a column heading.
Go to Extras > Settings ([Ctrl]+[Shift]+[S]).
|The FreeCommander Interface|
Under the View drop down menu, navigate to Custom Columns (profiles). Click on Add to list (the first button on the top menu) and type in an appropriate name for your entry. Next select the profile you just created and click on Define Columns (The last button on the menu which resembles a Hammer). Click on the Add to List icon and select the column type from the menu.
Once you are done configuring the profile, all that is left is to activate it for your file pane. Just go to view > Customs Columns > Your desired profile.
