    Going blue in the face over folder views.....oxygen please!!...:)

    Am driving myself totally potty over this....
    In file explorer, whenever I open a folder with, say, audio in it....I'm presented with info I don't need (contributing artists for example) and don't see info I DO need (type for example).

    How can I setup.....ideally a one time setup....to get the info I'm looking for?

    So....I have audio files in folders, inside folders etc....

    I don't use libraries BTW.....

    Hello kevster, :)

    After adding the "Type" column, you could use "Apply to Folders" like in the tutorial below to apply this folder view to all folders using the same template.
