Always show more or less details while copying or moving files in Windows 10

When we initiate the copy or move files command we get a dialog that shows us the progress of the current operation, under that bar we can click on the little arrow to expand the bar into so-called more details view where we get more information like which file is being copied, more detailed graph, etc.

Windows will remember the last option we had and next time when we start the same process it will open the last view.

But what if we want to only have one view always open as default, even if we change it? Let’s say that we always want to have a detailed view opened always as our default even if we switch to a minimal one? Well with some tweaks in the registry of Windows we can.

Note that this guide will require changing things in the registry of Windows itself, it is always smart and recommended to make a safe backup of your registry, just in case.

FOR ALWAYS SHOW MORE DETAILS FOLLOW THIS GUIDE:

open notepad and paste the following code inside:

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\OperationStatusManager]

“EnthusiastMode”=dword:00000001

Go to File > Save as… and once the file save dialog opens choose at the bottom all files under file type. Save the file with extension .REG naming it whatever you want.

Right-click on file and choose Merge, confirm with YES and you are done, now each time when you start copy or move operation details view will be open.
