Unfortunately there is no optional function in Path Finder to display access time (atime) and change time (ctime).

I always have to manually run a stat command in terminal. I don't want this anymore it is time consuming and not user friendly.

macOS and iOS/iPadOS with HFS+ and APFS support 4 timestamps you can see it with stat command here an example.

stat -f "Access (atime): %Sa%nModify (mtime): %Sm%nChange (ctime): %Sc%nBirth (btime = creation time): %SB" /test.txt

Access (atime): Nov 14 13:54:19 2019
Modify (mtime): Nov 14 13:54:19 2019
Change (ctime): Nov 14 13:54:19 2019
Birth (btime = creation time): Nov 14 13:54:19 2019

Path Finder 10.0.2 shows only Birth and Modified.

Please add as optional function under settings access time and change time. The options are disabled by default.
