Windows 10: File Explorer Column Headings

    File Explorer Column Headings

    Each time I make a new folder to store there some media files such as music or video, imediantly the column headings (automaticaly) are (except the name), as follows: # , Title, Contributing Artists, Album.
    So I have to click on each heading to change it (except name)(cannot change all the headings at once), to: Date, Type (sometimes), Size, like in folders containing simple files such as the OS folders / files. Is there some way to change it for all the folders to look the same.
    Will appreciate your answers.

    Hi Motim,
    there is great tutorial here by Brink. You have to change folder templates. They are different for typical contents: general, pictures, media etc.

    Just follow tutorials.
