I want to display the exact modified date/time in Finder. How can I do this?

As you may know, it's displaying things like like "yesterday" or "today" or just a date. I want to see the time component too as that can be important in some situations.



In Finder - View > Show View Options or Cmd ⌘ J

Uncheck "use relative dates"

  • That option doesn't exist in OS X 10.8.x, do you know of a way? Maybe a defaults write command? – user3439894 May 31 '15 at 16:45
  • Sorry, no idea on 10.8 - you should put the OS in the question, to avoid guesswork [if it was your question, otherwise raise another, with specific info.] – Tetsujin May 31 '15 at 18:40
