Every once in a while, a program will change the "last modified" date of a folder or file when you didn't want that to happen. (Microsoft Office often does this.)

If you want to change the date of a folder or file, you can use the following Microsoft PowerShell script:

$d = [system.io.directoryinfo]"C:\Stuff" $d.LastWriteTime = "8/1/2020 6:14 PM"


I'm sharing this in case someone (perhaps myself!) finds this useful.

A handy command indeed. Especially if you didn't actually modify something.
