apply folder options to all subfolders

Hello, i wonder if there is a way to apply specific folder settings to all subfolders without having to go through each one individually. Specifically i would like to know how to display the bit rate field in all subfolders of my music folder. I hope theres a way to do this and that someone out there is kind enough to share how it's done. Thanks in advance porps

Hello Porps,

You could use the tutorial below to apply folder views to all folders that have the same folder template (ex: Music) to do so.

Folder View - Apply to Folders

Hope this helps,
