The Finder used to include in window preview panes the time of day in file creation, modified and last-opened dates. Apparently, Sierra doesn't do that. Is there a way to have the time displayed again?

Thanks.

I don't use Sierra. Doesn't Finder have a toolbar at the top or a menu item which lets you select view options?

Yes, Limnos, under the View menu, there are Options, but none for displaying the time files were created, modified or last opened.

Now, having said that, and after several hours have gone by since posting my question, suddenly the creation, modified and last-opened times are being displayed. Before posting my question, I had opened several windows and selected several types of files and the time was not shown.

Now it's as though I've entered the Twilight Zone.

Carry on. Nothing to see here.

I was wondering what window you were opening that wasn't showing it.

Since it eventually appeared I'd blame Spotlight for getting into one of its interminable half-life states it loves to put itself into, where its indexes are unavailable for anything to use because it's doing... something... to them.

On the plus side I updated my 10.12 environment to current. Writing to an SD card is pretty painful, its hanging off a USB 2.0 bus in pre-2012 MacBooks like mine... I put my 10.12 on SD, since I couldn't put it on the internal HD w/o breaking boot camp.

Spotlight popped into my mind too.
