Windows 7: Folder arrangement

Folder arrangement

Hey guys...I am currently trying to organize my music. I have however encountered a slight (yet to myself major) issue. It appears as though each folder has their own settings for what information will be displayed (album artist/ contributing artists/title/name/track#/etc...). Is there any way to make it so that all my folders containing music only display "Name - Track # - Artist - Contributing Artist - Album"??? Organizing my music is tedious enough, I really don't need this slowing me down (such a hassle to fix each artist/album folder to have that information :S)

Any help is greatly appreciated.

Hello Opi8,

You can set the folder view to how you want it, then use the Apply to all folders option to apply it to all folders with the same folder template (ex: Music).

Hope this helps,
Shawn
