Windows 7: Win 7 Explorer column settings (id3 tags and width)

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
