    How to stop autodetected "music" custom folders

    I can open the properties on any folder, and go to the "customize" tab and "optimize" it, whatever that thinks it means..

    And it does nothing.

    I really don't like how windows tries to auto-read mp3 tags when most of my mp3s have no tags. I want the details view (which I use almost everywhere) to display, name, size, and date.

    How can I stop 10 from trying to show me empty track numbers, and empty album names without going through hundreds of folder manually? The "apply to all sub-folders" does not work, even applying to the folder in question doesn't work. It leaves the column as "music" when I want them to be like "document".

    In summary, the Customize "optimize for" selection seems to have no function...?

    Hello Malkere, and welcome to Ten Forums. :)

    This would be "Automatic Folder Type Discovery" causing this. If you like, you can use the .bat file from step 3 of OPTION THREE in the tutorial below to set all folders to the "General Items" template for details view, and stop this.

    after running the .bat, as auto-discovery still seems active it resets the folder to music when I open it again.

    after having them reset though and then going to the parent folder and applying document optimization to them all it's working.

    Thank you for the option Brink!
