I’ve pro­duced a se­ries of doc­u­ments for work re­lat­ing to in­ter­nal pol­icy, health and safety, and all that jazz. It’s only a lit­tle thing, but to make them just that bit more pro­fes­sional, I’d like to give the files all the same date and time. I know Mi­crosoft of­ten does this with the files in soft­ware re­leases. How’s it done, though? I can see no way to edit a file’s date and time within Win­dows.

There’s no way to do it di­rectly within Win­dows, but all you need is a nifty lit­tle util­ity called BulkFileChanger. It’s from a very clever chap named Nir Sofer, and you’ll find it at goo.gl/OH3yQl (check out some of his other utilities too). It’ll let you change the cre­ated, mod­i­fied, and ac­cessed de­tails, and you can also al­ter at­tributes (read-only, hid­den, and so on) – ei­ther on a sin­gle file or in bulk. I won’t bother to give in­struc­tions, John, as the pro­gram’s sim­plic­ity it­self to use.

Time’s up!
