explorer: how to display column with 'encoding'?


Senior Member
I got a folder with loads of files. I need to see which have been saved as utf-8.

So fat the only way is to open each file in notepad, do 'save as' and then check if the set encoding is utf-8 (next to the buttons). This is a realy pain.

In explorer I right-mouse-clicked in the column header and there you can select al whole load of column-types to display, however, not the encoding.

Am I overlooking something?
