I have a folder full of tons of different CorelDRAW files created in many different versions of CorelDRAW.  Is there a way to see what version each of the files was saved as?

The long way would be to rt click a file and go to "Properties>Details" That will show the version the file was created in. There must be a shorter / quicker way but I don't know what it would be.

If you're not on Vista, the Open dialog will show you the version (and build) when a file is selected.

If you are using Vista, open the folder in Explorer (or Draw's Open dialog for example) and choose Detailed List view. Right click on the bar above the file names (Name, Type, Size) and choose "More...". Enable "File version" in the dialog.
This will give you a column with file versions for CDR files from version 8 (I think) and up. The same thing should be possible with XP but I cannot check for the moment.

Note: Some words above may be incorrect, I use a Swedish version of Vista.

Running XP here Ronny and, unfortunantly, the "Open" window just says "Coreldraw X4 Graphic". Have to open "Details" to see actual saved version .

Really? I think you've missed it. Look at your screenshot. :-)

Cannot get file version to work in Detailed List view with XP though. Have tried now. Keywords and a few other EXIF things work, but not version.

Unfortunalely, Windows Vista don't display information about old versions, such as CorelDRAW 3.0 or 5.0

Take another look at my screen shot, only the third one (details) shows that the file was created using V9. Otherwise, it is referred to as "CorelDRAW X4 Graphic"

Welcome to the "Club".
 
PS: If you wear glasses, like me,.......make sure that you've cleaned them before hitting the "Reply Group" (see my replies above and you'll know what I mean ! )

No, for some reason. RecentFiles (wOxxOm) shows at least back to version 4, but only for the selected file.
