    Windows Explorer Default File Columns


    Is there a way to change the default columns when viewing in Windows Explorer? Every time I create a new folder, especially for audio files, I have to change the configuration of what info I want to see. And sometimes Windows doesn't SAVE that configuration? I have tried using the View|Options|Apply to folders, but it doesn't change in ALL folders. It always defaults back to "#", "Title", "Contributing Artists" and "Album." The columns I prefer I would like for ALL folders, no matter what the content is.


    Thank you in advance for any help you can give me.

  2. With the Windows File Explorer, is there any way of changing the default display window column widths?

    With the Windows File Explorer, is there any way of changing the default display window column widths?

    I have some files with very long names, and I always want to see the file extensions as well as the names. In the default Windows File Explorer, the first column listing the names of the files is too narrow for some of my file names with extensions. I
    can drag the right margin of the first column to the right and fix that, but the next time I open File Explorer, I have to do it again. I would like to set the column widths and have that be the default thereafter.
