How to Get Windows 10 to Display all Music Fields Globally


Recommended Posts

Hi guys,

 

I am in the process of updating my music collection and wish to get MS File Explorer to display a series of columns for every music title I have on file.

 

I need:

Artist

Album Title

Genre

Date Of Release

Bit Rate

Length

 

(I also wish to include whether a file is an MP3 or Flac file apart from the bit rate column which I assume is only applicable to MP3s)

 

I know how to add columns for each album singularly but I don't have the time to do this manually for many thousands of files.

 

Does any techie know how to get Microsoft to globally display all these details for each album title automatically.

 

Thanks in advance for any suggestions

 

Cheers

Have you considered something like TagScanner?

As well as extensive tag editing you can Export to various  formats (e.g, txt, csv, htm) and create reports like ...

Just use Musicbee. This is a dedicated music programme. It plays, edits tags, shows artwork, import artwork if it is missing, converts from format to format (eg Flac to mp3) etc etc.

You can configure your setup to show whatever columns you want.

 

Good forum on line to help if needed.

And its free.

Thanks for the tip from last night.

 

IT has sorted out all my music files perfectly.

 

I'll keep an eye out for the other 2 programs as well if I find I need more flexibility.

 

Cheers
