Indeed, this needs to be stickied.

Out of curiosity, anyone know if the file explorer in Windows 8 handles flac tags ?

Anyone know where this can be found now? A search results in just dead links. Thanks.

Is this FLACPH15.rar safe? Will it cause any modification to the flac files or just mods explorer?

Yes it's fine. It will not change the files. It just allows you to see the properties (Title, Artist, etc.) in Windows Explorer.
