need to show date and time in file manager gnome


Sometimes it shows only a month day, sometimes it shows just the time.
I need to show the date and the time in the file manager, otherwise I have to right click properties for every single file.


I tried sliding the headers which does nothing to help.
And I need to show the created date, not when it was modified or opened?

I found pcmanfm, works to show date-time, and can sort by file type.
And Nemo looks good, shows date-time stamps.

It is so dumb of linux file managers to show, today, yesterday, friday, etc....when you need to view lots of file dates as in motion camera software.

In nautilus (gnome's file manager) you can right click on the bar with the file attribute headings, and select the ones you want to show.

I tried that, and it has no options regarding date and time together.
Nautilus is very limited. Nemo is fine for my purposes.

You might not be able to have date and time under a single heading.
