    Details shown in explorer windows


    I must be searching for the wrong thing - I can't find a solution to this simple problem.

    In Windows 10, if I open a folder which has mp3s or WAVs in it, Windows decides I want to see things like "title", "contributing artists", "album" etc... It drives me mental. All I ever want to see in an explorer window is file type, file size and created and modified dates.

    I can't believe this isn't easy to set, but I can't find it. Please help - I work in music and every time I export an audio file I have to spend 10 seconds changing the view in the blinking folder to make sure what I need is there.

    Hey Maclie,
    Right click on the folder, choose Properties, then in Properties click on the Customize tab and set it to General Items. You can also customize the column headings by placing your mouse to right of the last column (title | artists | album) then right click and select the columns you want.

    "All I ever want to see in an explorer window is file type, file size and created and modified dates."

    Easy ! Read Option One in this tutorial and set Custom View to General (add 'Date created' by r-click'g Name bar at Explorer folder top, checking 'Date created' then folder ribbon/View/Options/Change folder ***/View/Apply to Folders/OK) -
