Attribute Changer is a good example of the kind of software that has been created for a very specific purpose and does its job perfectly well, with no hassle or nuisances for the user. In this case, the program adds a new command to the Explorer context menu from which you can easily change attributes.

It works both with files and folders, both with a single item or massive selections. Besides enabling you to change the basic attributes, you can also modify date and time with extraordinary precision.

Attribute Changer goes straight to the point: simple interface and easy to use. It has no configuration options (probably because it doesn't need them) but includes a fairly complete Help system to solve all your doubts about its usage.

Attribute Changer is a power user tool to change all kind of file and folder attributes, date, time and even NTFS compression.

Basic features include changing file and folder attributes within en masse. A really useful feature is the compression/decompression of files stored on the Windows NT/2000 and XP NTFS file system. Furthermore, date and time on files and folders can be partially changed. In this case, you can advise Attribute Changer not to change the whole object data, but only parts such as day, month, year, seconds, minutes or hours. The progress can be monitored in realtime on the "Activity and Results" tab.

Filters and exceptions should be used to fine tune the process. Filters include attributes, size, date and time while exceptions are used to filter out files and directory entries using wildcards (* and ?).
