Just try and you will see… Make backup of your settings and set the following tabstops:
Extension: 290
Size: 430
Date/Time: 320
Attributes: 434
Comments: 92

Apply and look for Size column header…

Yes it's possible by creating custom columns
1- Right click on any column header and select "Configure custom columns..."
2- Click New button
3- Type any name for your custom columns
4- Click Add column button then plus button
5- Select writedate and click OK
6- Repeat step #4 and #5 to add more columns.

Unfortunately the size column will overlap the date column after manual resize.

I didn't tell it's a perfect solution. I did even make a remark about missing column header.

There was no info about any tests in the original posting, so I just wrote an example to play with. Column width depends on font and TC window size. The example is for Tahoma, other fonts may be wider and need more space. The most important thing is to remember that Size column is right aligned, so tabstops for this column and the next one in needed display order should be similar.
