Attribute Changer 7.11

A simple-to-use and powerful tool that allows you to change and set different characteristics for files and folders on your computer
Did you ever need to change a file's date and time stamp? Information regarding the moment a file was created, modified or accessed surely represented an inconvenience for you at some point. Windows makes it rather difficult to change this kind of data so here is where Attribute Changer comes into play.

Context menu integration

Once the quick install is over you can right-click on any file or folder on your computer and select the newly added Change Attributes function to launch the program.

Change file attributes using advanced features

It will provide you with not only the means to adjust basic file properties such as read-only, hidden or system but also with advanced time stamp tampering options.

You can use absolute date and time adjustments to make precise modifications on file attributes by manually inputting desired parameters, Attribute Changer allowing you to modify even the second a program received a time stamp.

Apply the current time frame and masks

If you just want to replace the item's stored time stamp information with the current time frame, you can quickly do that by using the pop-up menu. It allows you to do that for selected fields only or for all the fields in one click. A mask proves very useful when you only want to change one time related item such as day for example. Selecting its check-box and deselecting the others will only modify information in the field you are interested in.

Relative date and time adjustments

But if that seems like a lot of work you should certainly use the relative date and time adjustments. This function allows you to change time stamps by simply typing positive or negative numbers in the fields you are interested in and the time stamp adjusts automatically considering the values you entered.

Work with filters

And that is not all it can do. Photos, if taken with a digital camera, are imprinted with metadata, also known as EXIF information. Well, Attribute Changer is able to tamper with that too. Moreover, the application allows you to set different time stamp parameters and use them to include or exclude files from modifications that match a certain criteria. Thus, only files complying with the user-defined parameters will be modified.

Simulation mode

Last but not least, for the time it takes to familiarize with the application you should use the simulation mode and avoid making changes you don't really care for.

Bottom line

All in all, Attribute Changer comes packed with a powerful suite of features, provides a straightforward approach for helping you modify file attributes, and is suitable for rookies and professionals alike.
