Any way to "tag" files in Windows ?
« on: October 09, 2006, 10:58:17 AM »
Hi folks,

Im searching a way to tag all kind of files in Windows Explorer. Example: I listen to a lot of Podcasts, so I want rightclick on one MP3 File and apply "toListen" to it, to differ from old and new ones... Or add "*****" for high rated files... Do you know an App which provides me this features?

iTunes and I think Windows Media Player lets you rate songs/media files. But that's probably not what you're asking for.

PCMag has a numer of utilities that *might* will let you do this - I think they currently charge $7.95 per utility. I haven't used any of them but used to check for new apps from them fairly regularly when they were still free. I recall a couple, at least, that let you add notes to files or to assign custom "tips" to files.

But... Vista isn't enabled with these features? Star rating and tagging ?
