    File Explorer: Globally Add Bit Rate "Sort By" Item in Details Mode


    Hello, I am (as of this writing) using Windows 10 Preview Build 14390. My question has to do with customizing folders in File Explorer.

    Is there a way to customize every folder/subfolder on my system (including external hard drives, USB flash drives, and CD/DVD) so that the Bit Rate type Iíve selected in the Sort By context menu is displayed in ďDisplayĒ Mode?

    As of right now, it seems I have to add this option manually to each and every folder I use, one at a time.

    If this is possible, what is the procedure? Also, if it is possible, will it work for new folders, as well? And will it work if I rename a folder?

    The Bit Rate option need only appear in folders that contain audio files. Is there a way to restrict this option so that it doesnít appear in every folder? (Itís not a big deal if it canít.)

    Hereís a screen shot of what Iím referring to:

    Thank you for any assistance! J. Danniel

    Hi @jdanniel, welcome to tenforums.com! :)

    Set your preferred view, then click on your View Tab, then Options:

    then Apply... 3 - 6:

    It should apply those preferences to all folders of that type in that directory.

    Quick follow-up question: This doesn't seem to work for new folders, or uncompressed/unzipped folders. Does this procedure work only for folders that already exist on my system? Thank you.

    Depends where the folder came from or where it was created and what it contains.
    Right click the folder, choose Properties/Customize and Optimize the folder accordingly.
    It should apply your settings.

    Thank you again. It's not a big deal if one folder here or there needs to be customized manually. I was concerned about having to customize an external hard drive's worth of folders and subfolders. I greatly appreciate your assistance. Thank you. Jd
