Windows 10: Adding Title/Comments/Tags to Folders + Sort in File Manager
Adding Title/Comments/Tags to Folders + Sort in File Manager
1. Does anyone know of a simple method to add titles, comments, or tags, to folders in Windows 10?
There was something called HobComment that worked on XP but there does not appear to be a Win10 X64 version.
2. Is it possible to have File Manager ignore definite and indefinite articles (the, a, an) when sorting by name?
Hi, search syntax is fairly comprehensive- you may find sthg here:
Advanced Query Syntax (Windows)
(not certain if that's the latest spec)
Ok, folder tips. This works for me.. not ideal, but there..
Download and install this:
You also need to do this:
You'll see your detailed pop-up description the next time you mouse over that folder.
Note: If you don't see a pop-up when you mouse over a folder, you need to enable a couple of settings. In explorer, click Change Folder & Search Options, and then select the View tab. Then, in the Advanced Settings list, select the check boxes for
Display File Size Information In Folder Tips
Show Pop-Up Description For Folder And Desktop Items.
Now to add a comment, rt click the folder, click
Customise with StyleFolder.
The comment appears in the tooltip when you mouseover the folder.
The option to change the text colour doesn't seem to work

Thanks for the info Dalchina.
However my problem is not a search issue, it's about the sequence in which File Manager displays the folders.
Could you amplify that? I've answered your 2 original questions, I believe, which didn't mention the display sequence.
Sorry about that.
What I'm after is the ability to have file manager sort folders (and files) in what is termed "library sequence", where definite and indefinite articles are ignored.
Reason for this is that I occasionally have the need to match certain files and folders with data held in an application which sorts in library sequence and does not have an option to perform an alphabetic sort.
I can of course get around this by importing both sets into Excel and performing a sort and match there.
It's not a train smash, it's just that like all system programmers (even those who have retired) I am inherently lazy.
Hi, just come across this which I think will interest you- seems very competent.
