Finally the wait is over! Almost all Windows Vista and 7 users wanted to achieve it.

When you cut, copy or delete a file/folder in Windows Vista and 7, it shows a file transfer dialog box. There is a button "More Details" shown in the dialog box which expands the dialog box upon clicking and shows more details like file name, speed, etc.

The problem is that even if you click on "More Details" button, Windows forgets your choice and shows the default dialog box with "Fewer Details" activated, next time you perform a file transfer operation.

That's it. Now whenever you perform a file transfer operation, the progress dialog box will be automatically expanded to show More Details.
