  2. Windows 10 File Explorer's Recent Files fails to show MP3 and other extensions

    Do you have Explorer set to show extensions? I wonder if you're seeing an actual mp3 or some other file associated with your editing. If a file shows up on the list, you should have access to all normal verbs (open, edit, play, etc)

    I initially thought you weren't seeing the files in the Quick Access list, similar to .reg files, but on rereading, it seems you have a different issue.

    Can you include a screenshot of the right=click menu of one of these files?

  3. AIFF music files not showing details in File Explorer but MP3 does


    Hello. I have Windows 10 Version 1709 (build 16299.248) and I recently learned that MP3 is a lossy format so I started re-encoding in AIFF but I noticed that in the music folder it only shows the track name. It's indirectly sorted by track order by putting a two digit number at the beginning of the song title (eg. 01 first track 02 second track) but it isn't showing the track number artist name, album name or any of that other information.
    I contacted Windows support and they did call me back and on the telephone they told me to contact Apple support, and that it may be a compatibility issue. So, I told themI posted this on their boards and the poster also stated that it's a compatibility issue. I don't doubt that this is the case but is there something that I missed? I'm including two screenshots. One shows file explorer with an MP3 album and another with the files in AIFF. I did use MP3Tag and opened up an MP3 and it was using Id3Tag v2.3 where my AIFF's are using v2.2. But I would think that they'd be downward compatible.

    AIFF music files not showing details in File Explorer but MP3 does


    Hi, I managed to find an aif file (not aiff) to download and my Details pane shows

    Maybe you could upload an aiff file?

    Note: flac is not lossy.. also the perceived loss with mp3's can be noticeably different dependent on parameters such as the bit rate. At 320kb/s you may well not notice the loss.. and it depends on your speakers and hearing of course.
