    editing metadata for file type without file ending


    Dear Microsoft Experts,

    we have files without a type file ending like .txt or .jpg and use Windows 10 Pro.
    Its just the file name. When want to edit the metadata (right click - properties)
    we have no success, it just cant be edited.
    However, my memory tell me, this worked with Windows XP e.g. editing metadata for files of type "File".
    Is my observation correct?

    :)

  2. Edit metadata autocomplete list for pictures/music files

    It seems like the list is generated from existing tags or other metadata. So, if you're getting 'junk' suggestions, it's likely that some other file has that 'junk' data. So you need to locate those files with bad metadata & delete/edit it to 'good' information.

  3. Edit metadata autocomplete list for pictures/music files

    I cannot find a way to delete/edit the autocomplete list displayed when editing the metadata on pictures. I get a list of previous entries (some of which are just plain junk) and would like to delete those as suggestions. I tried the steps with the following
    link and did not have any success. I do not have a AUTOCOMPLETE listing under "Computer\HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\MediaPlayer".

    The locked thread for a similar question under Windows Vista:

    Edit autocomplete drop-down list for genre metadata in music files

    Thanks,

    Editing/adding additional file properties/metadata for media files


    I'm in the process of trying to organise and categorise my media files using file properties/metadata. When I go to the properties of, for example, an .mp4 file, I can edit the 'details' such as Title, Subtitle, Rating, Contributing Artists, Genre, Year, etc.

    However, in Explorer, when I go to 'Add Columns', there are a number of columns that I can't find in the 'Details' window of the file properties. For example, there are columns for 'Episode number' and 'Season number' (useful for organising TV shows), but I can't figure out how to add these details to files.

    Can anyone tell me how I can edit/add the following metadata to media files?

    • #
    • Broadcast Date
    • Creators
    • Episode Name
    • Episode Number
    • Language
    • Season Number

    Thank you for your help!
