Software made in Luxembourg

Attribute Changer freeware is a powerful Windows Explorer add-on, available whenever you right-click on files and folders in Windows Explorer. 

The application can modify date and time on files, folders and photos. Filesystem attributes can be changed and you can uppercase, lowercase or capitalize names. Much more powerful options include simulation, batch processing, randomization, synchronization among others.

Modify attributes and name

Each file and folder stored on a Windows filesystem has system attributes that can be modified with Attribute Changer. 

For example, you can make a file Read-Only to prevent software programs from saving changes to a file. Files and folders can be hidden under normal conditions if the Hidden attribute is set.

For better readibility, Attribute Changer can be used to Capitalize, Uppercase or Lowercase filenames, foldernames and extensions. 

Modify date and time

Powerful options are available to manipulate date and time stamps on files, folders. On photos, date and time information stored in the EXIF header can be easily altered or even added if missing.

Choose among a set of powerful features to resolve issues about date and time modifications:

· Absolute date and time stamps
· Add/Subtract values on hour, minute and second
· Add/Subtract values on day, month and year
· Randomise date and time
· Modify or add photo date and time (EXIF)

Use filters

Attribute Changer can use filters to include or exclude objects based on attributes, date, time, size and name wildcards. Ranges can be defined for date, time and size related criteria.

Name filters are useful to exclude/include files and folders based on wildcard characters (* and ?). You are able to build powerful exceptions like *.TMP, WRD?????.DOC, *(?)*.TXT etc


Attribute Changer keeps track of modified and failed files and folders during processing.

Old and new values of modifications are listed side by side for a comparision.

All logged activity can be exported into comma separated text files for further processing in a spreadsheet or to be archived.
