  1. File Explorer displays MP3 details, NOT File Details. How to switch ?


    Hello,

    In Windows 10 using the File Explorer, When I copy/create a new .MP3 file
    onto my computer it is displaying the .MP3 info. and not general file info. in the File Explorer.

    Example:
    It displays "Name, #, Title, Artist, Album" etc.

    It should be displaying...

    "Name, Date Modified, Type, Size" etc.

    Question:
    How do I make File Explorer display the General File information and not this other stuff ?

    Thank you,

    *Mad

    :)

    File Explorer displays MP3 details, NOT File Details. How to switch ?

    Welcome to TenForums @Arealperson

    File Explorer automatically selects a view for the folder based on it's contents. If it contains mp3 files it will be the Music view.

    You can change this. Take one step up so that you see the folder containing your mp3s. Right-click on the folder and select Properties. On the Customise tab under 'Optimise this folder for:' select General items.


    Edit: you can also customise the view of the folder you are in by right-clicking on an empty space within the folder. See this tutorial.

    Here are some mp3's in a general folder (not under Music):
    Note the Details pane displays metadata so you can have both.

    Hello Arealperson, and welcome to Ten Forums. *Smile

    It sounds like the folder is optimized to have a "Music" folder template, and would be why it's showing those details.

    As a test, change the folder template to "General Items" that should show the details you wanted instead.
