Update May 2017

A May 2017 Microsft security update for Windows 10 conflicted with a major routine in FileBoss resulting in FileBoss not starting on some Windows 10 systems.

Versions V3.101 and later, fix the problem. You can read more about this at the page

Change File Attributes & Times

To Change Attributes or Times of Selected Files

Menu item for changing attributesFirst select the files you want to change.


  • Select Actions | Change Attributes... from the main menu
  • or click the Change Attributes button:
  • A dialog will appear where you can specify what you want changed and whether or not you want to confirm each file before changes are made.

Hint: You can also use the Touch command to change file times and attributes. It is very similar to the Change Attributes routine but can be much quicker for repetitive actions. For more information about the Touch command click here.


Changing File Attributes & Times

Can change the attributes and times of one file or thousands

of selected files at the same time

Similar to the Touch command

that can be used for changing attributes and file times quickly and can even touch files and folders beneath any selected folders.

times individually or together

Worry-free Confirmations

You can confirm every file or tell FileBoss to change all the files automatically. And even if you choose to confirm each file you can always change your mind at any time and have FileBoss automatically change the remaining files.
