Changing Report Layout

You can customize report layouts for your own purposes. By default, reports include a
column for each information type you selected before running the report, in the order
presented in the report dialog. The columns in the report are initially sorted by
computer name.

You can resize or rearrange the columns of a report, as well as sort the rows by column.

Additionally, in the File Search report, you can choose what information is displayed
about a found item. By default, the item name, kind, parent path, actual size, and
modification date are displayed.

To change what information is displayed for file searches:


Choose Report > File Search.


In the File Search report window, select or deselect each report column as desired.


After making your selections, click Search.
