HowTo set columns in Explorer Vista?
« on: December 11, 2008, 10:52:37 AM »
How do I apply the same columns to all folders in the Music directory (only)?  tellme

Finally my new Vista was up and running, and now it was time to listen to some music! Now, where do I want to start? Hmm..., what is that: "Genre", "Classification" (rating)? I don't want those two columns! But I do want to also see the lenght (duration?) and the file size. Okay, done. Hmm... How to make it happen to all folders in 'My Music'? Maybe if I do it in the Music directory, like this:


- and remember to click "add to sub folders"?

No, wrong! The sub folders all show it the same old "wrong way" (including Genre and Klassification):
(I prefer "længde"+"størrelse" over "genre"+"classification")

Damn it, it can't be true, can it? Am I to manually make this setting in 2500 folders? No, of course not; even Microsoft cannot be that stupid - the stupid one must be me! I managed to ALMOST make it happen, only to realize that I had applied the same "musical" setting to all folders on the entire computer! We can't have that!

Question: How do I apply the same columns to all folders in the Music directory (only)?  :tellme:


I thought I knew the answer, but Vista has been showing me that I didn't.  :-[
More Christians have been killed for their faith in the last 70 years, than in the previous 1900 years combined. Racism due to religion is now more common, than racism due to race - and no religious group around the world is persecuted more than Christians.
