    File Explorer Column Headings


    Hello,
    Each time I make a new folder to store there some media files such as music or video, imediantly the column headings (automaticaly) are (except the name), as follows: # , Title, Contributing Artists, Album.
    So I have to click on each heading to change it (except name)(cannot change all the headings at once), to: Date, Type (sometimes), Size, like in folders containing simple files such as the OS folders / files. Is there some way to change it for all the folders to look the same.
    Will appreciate your answers.
    Thanks


    :)

    Hi Motim,
    there is great tutorial here by Brink. You have to change folder templates. They are different for typical contents: general, pictures, media etc.

    Just follow tutorials.
