Hi, please forgive me if this question has been answered before on these forums but I canít seem to get the search function to work at all.

Recently I had to re-install Windows XP Home on my computer as the result of a crash which really trashed the registry for some reason, on re-installing the system I noticed that Explorer Status Bar no longer displayed the information it used to pre-crash in regard to .avi files, it used to give information like the codec compressions used, XviD, DivX 5.0, etcetera, now it just gives video clip duration, bit rate and dimensions. Can anyone tell me if there is a registry setting to change the information displayed in the status bar, or suggest a method for getting this information back? Iíve tried searching the net high and low without luck and thought Iíd ask here in the hope of an answer.

Any help would be appreciated.

In the Explorer view: Click View, Change Details...select whatever you want to see.

You can make this selection for just that folder or for all folders.

Hi Hamluis, the setting you refer to just seems to be for the main window in details view, the displayed text I'm refering to is the text displayed at the bottom left of the explorer window if you have status bar ticked from the view menu and have an avi file selected.

Thanks for taking the time to reply anyway.

Sounds like the sort of thing that a third party piece of software would add to explorer.
Any software that you haven't reinstalled yet?

You got it tswsl1989! After reading your suggestion I realised that I hadnít installed various pieces of video editing software Iíd picked up along the way and when I installed a piece of software called abcAVI Tag Editor the missing text magically appeared in the status bar! Thanks for steering me in the right direction.
