How can I create a custom folder template in Windows 7

How can I create a custom folder template in Windows 7. For instance I need to see bitrate, album year, and genre in my music folders and it's sooo frustrating to have to open this information everytime I enter a folder. It sould just be there, how can I make this happen.

Right click that folder - Properties - Customize tab - Optimize this folder for MUSIC -Ok.

Then open this folder, make sure it is in details view (Right click - View - Details), then right-click on the table row "Name" and select parameters you want.

Hello az116, and welcome to Seven Forums.

In addition to the above, you could use the tutorial below to set these folder view settings to be applied to all of your folders that have a "Music" folder template.

Folder View - Apply to Folders

Hope this helps,

I thank you very much for your reply, but that's basic info I knew and the moment you exit that folder those parameters are gone and when you reopen the folder you have to right click and select them again, over and over and over again, I'm getting carpal tunnel just thinking about it. I'm needing to create a custom folder template where I can choose what parameters are permanently affixed to a folder or folders other than the generic templates here.

Strange, the method at the link I posted above usually works just fine with the folder templates that it was apllied to. Of course, you have to make sure that the folders you want this applied to, all have the same folder template. Is that the method you used to set it your's with?

Could you give a step by step break down of what you are doing to set it to see if something may be wrong for why it's not sticking?
