When I view the Owner column in Windows Explorer, Windows XP takes a long time to display the folder contents. How can I remove this column?

A. XP has difficulty displaying an object's owner in Windows Explorer. To remove the Owner column so that Windows Explorer no longer displays it on any folder, perform the following steps:

  1. Right-click the column headings to display a list of all available column options.
  2. Clear the check mark next to Owner.
  3. From the Tools menu, select Folder Options.
  4. Select the View tab, then click Apply To All Folders.
  5. Click Yes, then click OK.
