    How do I clean out File;Properties;Details;Tags dropdown lists


    I have over the last year or so populated this dropdown with many entries that I now want to remove. I see how to do it file by file (thanks to your tutorials) but would like to reset/clear out these dropdown lists to start again.
    Many thanks

    Windows Explorer/file Properties Details not displaying tags


    I'm trying to tag documents so they can be found easily but I don't have the option to add a tag to a file. The Details panel in my Windows Explorer does not display tags in the list of properties. Also, when I right-click a file, go to Properties and then click the Details tab, tags are not listed there either.

    Is there a way to turn this feature on? Thanks in advance for any help.

    Metadata Tagging and Changing Detail Properties on WAV files

    Hi Joel

    Yes this has always been a headache for wav. file users. I believe it is simply due to the size of wav. files. Back when they were developed (partly by MS) they were for very small sound files (start-up - alerts etc.) and not expected to be used for large
    audio files so a tagging system was never developed. However, information can be added to the various fields in WMP but this does not stick to the file of course.

    Converting the files to mp3 would mean adding the data there subsequently in most cases so it may be best to stick with what you have already.

    As others have suggested there are limited tagging options for wav. by using the 'Audacity' audio editing suite. That would mean quite a lot of work for you, but I'll explain further if it is of any interest. In the meantime here is the link to the Audacity
    info pages (the program can also be downloaded there) and below that a 'properties-details' box of a wav. file saved with audacity - somewhat limited but maybe of some use!

    Cheers, Ric.

    How do I clean out File;Properties;Details;Tags dropdown lists

    Location of tags used

    I know how to tag files. Where can I find the list of tags I've used? I know I can create tags "on the fly" which is the problem. Now I have some mistakes and after clean up, need to remove the 'mistakes' from the list. They aren't assigned to any files,
    and as long as they are being auto-suggested I risk using them.

    Thank you
