Over time, I have downloaded quite a few program files. However, I haven't always executed them at the time of download. How can I tell which of those program files have already been executed? I know about Add-Remove Programs, but that doesn't list all of the programs, updates, etc.. that appear in my downloaded program folder. (Or, at least I don't think it does.) Thanks for any help with this.

1) Start up My Computer and navigate to your downloaded software folder
2) Click on View and select details
3) Click on View and select Choose Details
4) Select Date Accessed
5) Compare Date Accessed and Date Modified
6) If Date Accessed is later than Date Modified, then you executed it.

Hope this helps,

Dan

Absolutely brilliant! Thanks so much. I didn't even have the date created in the detail list, but fortunately, I knew how to make it show up. :thumbsup:
