    Right Click - Properties - look for the 'accessed' date.

    In windows explorer, see the bit at the top where it says "Name", "Size", "Type" etc, right click on that and select "More" from the list, then you should be able to check the box saying "Last accessed"
    that way you'll be able to see the last accessed date in explorer without actually touching the file.


    That work for you OK?
