Summary tab missing from Properties

When using Windows Explorer / Properties / the Summary tab does not appear. I would like to know how to restore the Summary tab, as it is very useful especially when managing MP3 files and photos. I am using Vista Home Premium, with 2G of memory. Thanks

Hi Calfall,

In order to get “summary” tab to sort columns in any window  you need to add it.

Right click on the bar where the sorting options are present, click on more.
It will open up the “Choose details” window.
Scroll down the list and put a check mark on “Summary”
Click on OK.

“Summary” tab will appear on the sort bar

Thanks and Regards,
