How to change the default "Sort By" items for a music folder?

hi everyone
I want to know if i can change the default items that appear in the "SORT BY" menu for a music folder?
i mean when i open a music folder and try to sort its items i find these values
(Name , # , Title , Contributing Artists ,More)

but i usually want to sort it by "size" or "rank" , so i've to click the "More" menu item then add the sort values that i want to use ,and then i've to do this step in every music folder.

so i asked if there anyway that enables me to permanently change the sort items that appear in the "Sort By" menu?

Click on Organise > Layout > Menu Bar to enable the menu.
You can then change the way things are sorted and grouped from within the View menu (Sort by and Group By).
Once you've done this, do Tools > Folder Options > View and the select Apply to Folders. However it may not change all of the views as Windows overrides some of them with it's preferred layout.
