CMD window - Show Filenames on the Left

I first saw this trick in XP, but whatever still works in Win10, is still current. Type “envir” from Search, look for ‘edit environment variables for your account’, add a new variable called “dircmd” <- no quotes. Give that variable a value of /-n. From then on, at least for that user, files’ names will show on the left, and their stats to the right. This is all great, if you like file names on the left, which I prefer.
