How Do I Display MP3 File Duration In Explorer?

I've selected it in view - choose details, but all I get is a column with "duration" at the top and nothing listed underneath.

I know these mp3s are fine as I've been using them on my old machine running xp

Now running Windows7 premium on a new machine. All mp3s were transferred from a usb external hard drive on to my new machine

Thanks

Hi

Welcome to SF - try using 'length' rather than 'duration' - works for me and 'duration' is same for me i.e. missing - it probably relates to files other than mp3's.

How to make File Explorer display full address of files in search
I have done a search and file explorer returns some results. You can see the locations of each file are chopped off. But there is no grid splitter allowing me to expand the filename column. How can I view the whole address of the files in Search results?
