How do I add information to media in the 'My Music' folder?

I am trying to organize my music, and a lot of my songs don't have information under Album. I've tried right clicking on the file then clicking properties, but there is no option there to edit the information. How can I add the name of the Albums? Pleeeease help!

You may be able to add or edit the missing info though Windows Media Player. Another option is to use a program like mp3tag. Its a free mp3 file, tag info editor.
Mp3tag - the universal Tag Editor (ID3v2, MP4, OGG, FLAC, ...) With mp3tag you can select a group of files and edit the album title, or add album art etc. It saves a lot of time when you don't have to edit each file one at a time.
