#2652 assigned enhancement

Default Preferences folder display & Preflet Description attribute

Idea partly by Koki in #haiku

Add preflet descriptions to a Description attribute and display them in the Tracker window.

Set the default view for the preferences folder to detailed list view, hide every column except Name and Description (of course, the user can change this), as size and date &c. are not as important for preflets. This provides quick, easy access to the preflets and what they all do without having the user do any extra work (just open the Preferences folder)

Change History (3)

It's actually a very nice idea IMHO. Hope to see this implemented soon.

It could even be extended to system folder describing drivers/add-ons/servers, maybe their versions.
