Win 7 Explorer column settings (id3 tags and width)

Hey all, first post here..

I'd like to apply some custom columns to my windows explorer folder views, mainly showing id3 tag info and remembering column widths.

I have folder c:\music\, which has ~1200 subfolders so I'm looking for way to make custom settings to c:\music and then applying them to all subfolders (win xp style).

"Properties/customize -> folder style -> music" seems to add some id3 tags but not the ones i want, also it doesn't do anything about column width. :-/

Ideas anyone? Or should I try something like http://classicshell.sourceforge.net?

Hello Opel, and welcome to Seven Forums.

You could use the tutorial below to add the columns and make any other folder view adjust menu to say a folder with a "Music" folder template, then "apply to all folders" with a "Music" folder template to do so.

Folder View - Apply to Folders

Hope this helps,
Shawn

windows explorer column width
once, i reduced the column size ("name") in order to see the other fields (date, folder, etc..) and no matter how many times I pull it out wider, it defaults back to the small size. I see no 'setting' for this to keep it from defaulting back to the smaller size...????

List View Column Width
I need to display more columns of information so that I can bounce back and forth through my files in a large folder, in vista I could display 10-12 columns of files per screen, but in 7 I can only display 4-5 columns because it auto adjusts to the length of the file name. I don't need the whole...

Open/Save As Column Width
Just about every time I do a 'File Open' or 'Save As' command, the columns in the ensuing window that opens are too narrow. I usually have to drag the "Name" column to make it wider so I can see the entire file name. Is there a way to fix the column width globally, to a preset width, regardless...
