display files before folders in the music library

Q: display files before folders in the music library

I've noticed that the music library always shows folders (not files) first when ordering by date (created/modified). In Vista, files can be shown first, which I prefer since I can see my most recent music files. So my question is... is it possible to change this, to display files and then folders (as in Vista)?
Thanks in advance.

Update: it happens in all the libraries, not only in the music one. However in the computer explorer it doesn't, I mean, files appear in the first place.

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/directdownload.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Hello antoniomc, welcome to Seven Forums!


I haven't experimented with Libraries much so here's the link to the Libraries tutorials until someone can answer your question.

Not being that experienced, I'm a little confused w/ the way the Library sorts CDs into genres vs the way I could sort the Music Folders. They don't seem to relate. For example, the Library lists an album under "Rock" that I would like to move to another genre but I cannot figure a way to do this. On the other hand, I know I could play around w/ the folders so that this particular CD is in the right place. However, I'm not sure that if I take the time to organize my Music folders whether this will have any impact on how the Library sorts them.
If you can shed some light on this I'd sure appreciate it.
Thanks, Nick.
 

A:Solved: Windows media music library vs music folders

Mp3 music files have tags that are kept inside the files themselves. The most common ones are Artist, Album, Track Title, Track Number, Release Year and Genre. When you put a file into the WMP library, the tags are read and stored, along with the file location.

So the tag data is what shows up in the WMP library and you can sort on various fields depending on which version you have. But the files can be put anywhere and named anyway you like. Most people use a certain naming convention like Artist-TrackNumber-Title.

If you want to sort the folders by genre you could do that, but you'll have to do it manually. You can do some manipulating of folders and filenames with tag editors. If you want to give that a try get Mp3Tag.

Windows 8 metro Music app just does not display my music.

As you can see, my music folder is included in the music library:
but yet the Music app only recognizes two songs out of 1000+ that I own
Windows media player, the desktop app, is working fine.
I've tried to restart the metro app several times, in vain.

When I click on This PC, I see the Folders section, then the Devices and Drives.


Is there any way to add another folder to the Folders section?

I'd like to add my Dropbox folder here or a shortcut here so it's easily accessible from This Pc and from in software when trying to save a file.

Any ideas?

Since the last Windows 7 update a day or two ago, the display of folders in my Documents library has changed. The folders are now displayed in one column with dates showing when each folder was created. This makes scrolling necessary to view all the folders. I'd like to change this back to the way it was, in rows of columns (without dates or any other info) so I can see all the folders at once.
I've tried everything I can think of and I've searched this forum with no luck. Any help would be appreciated.

Hello Fred,

Setting your folder view settings to Group by -> (None) and view by large or medium icons should sort this for you.

I'm running Windows 10 (upgraded) on a HP Pavilion 23

I have some file in my music library which are incorrectly labeled (Wrong artist or wrong album etc) and I am not able to edit the information, only re-name the song.

On the "home" tab the edit option is there, but not accessible.

If I choose Properties>details>Remove Properties and Personal Information>Remove the Following...
I can click to remove the bad info, but it does not apply it to the file. (the info remains attached)

Is the only way to fix this re-ripping/ downloading the file?

Hey guys,

I have playlists setup so that my various MP3 devices can sync with different music.

In the future, I would like to be able to drag a music file (from a windows folder) directly into a certain playlist, AND have it go into the main library, all it once. Is this possible?

Right now, if I try to drag a song into a playlist, it will not let me. The only way I can do it now is by dragging the song into the main library, finding it, and then putting it in the playlist from within the library.

As you may guess, this is quite troublesome if I have many artists I am dragging into the library since I must go through find each one, and then drag. Thanks!
 

A:Is there a way to drag music files directly to a WMP playlist (and the library)?

You could drag all of your music files into the library one time and leave them there. Then select songs from the library to put into the playlist.

Hello,
This is my first post. I just installed Windows 7 and one thing is really annoying me. How do I shut off the feature that asks me to take ownership of every individual folder in my music files from my external drive before I can open them and add them to my media player library? I just want to add them the way I used to in XP or better yet just drag and drop the main folder into media player.

A:How do I add music files from external drive to media player library using windows 7?

This information should do the trick.You will basically take possession of the entire drive all at once instead of files\folders on at a time.I realize it says XP in the title but it should work for Win7 too.

I'm having difficulty adding MP3 files from other folders to the Media Player library. When I choose "add to Library..." in Media Player, it scans for digital files and finds lots of them, but nothing gets added to the library. If I click on one of the digital files in another folder, Media Player will play the file, but I can't add it to the library. What's up?

2. Can I easily combine all the music without going thru and deleting redundant copies of each song?

Hello there,
I am having trouble showing hidden files and folders on my computer running Windows XP.
I tried going to the Folder Options and clicking "Show Hidden Files" but even though I click it, the screen just flickers and goes back to "do not show hidden files and folders"
I read something about AMVO virus but don't seem to have it now if I did - but meanwhile - how do I display my hidden files again?
Thanks in advance....

Is there a way to display hidden files and folders only? I noticed something dds-hidden that pops up when I shut down. What is it?

Thanks
 

A:Solved: Display Hidden Files & Folders

It would help to know what directory it is in, but if you don't you can search the entire root drive and subdirectories for hidden files with the command below. Open a command prompt (start > run, enter cmd

Enter:

dir /s /ah

You will see a lot of hidden files.

If you know what directory it is in, it will reduce the list greatly by changing directories first. EG:

cd c:\windows
If you enter dir /? you will see a list of "switches" available to the "dir" command.

the only issue I have, that I have never had with any other computer is when I open up windows explorer or hit Ctrl + E key, to get explorer open, it takes forever for computer to go from My computer to Local C: drive (shows that flashlight), and then when local C: drive comes up, and I click on that, it takes forever for that to populate with drive info (showing flashlight thingy again )
after that, browsing to all the folders is normal.

does it everytime a new explorer window is opened by the way, not just the first time.

Hiya

The Picture It! Library and Digital Image Library do not display temporary files. By ignoring temporary files, the Library can remain clean and uncluttered. An issue has been identified where some software marks photos as temporary files when they are acquired from the camera. This patch enables the Library to view these temporary files.

The software currently known to mark new files as temporary is Canon Utilities ZoomBrowser version 4.1.0.46.

System Requirements
Supported Operating Systems: Windows 2000, Windows 98, Windows ME, Windows XP

Multimedia PC with Pentium 500 MHz or higher processor
128 MB of RAM

When I connect my Android phone to my computer via USB to access storage, it treats all the folders as music folders - this means that in Details view I don't get "date modified" but "track number", "artist", "album", etc.. despite this being completely irrelevant to the content of all but a single folder on the phone.

Is there any way of telling Windows that these are NOT music folders?

EDIT:
A couple hours of searching have given me nothing. I can change everything and anything I want about all but the library folders on the computer itself.

There doesn't appear to be any way to modify folders on removable media.

I know it's confusing but essentially what's happening is that the Albums for each band in my music folder are displayed twice. Once in the Band folder where they should and once in the music folder. Under properties it says the location is where it should be. Also when I try to delete the one in the music folder it deletes both so it's not a shortcut. I just tried copying over my entire music folder to my external HDD then deleting everything in the Music folder and recopying but it happened again.

A:How to tell MUSIC app to rescan the library?

First of all: Using WMP for music collections is a bad Idea. It's ui is rubbish. But what's more it also messes up the media folders. It creats thounsands of cryptically named copies of the albums art files, it stores them hidden and marks them as system files and in some cases it even converts a ordinary folder.jpg file into a hidden system file. Get some decent media player like Winamp, Media Monkey or even VLC player.

Hey, if you bring up your iTunes and click on the advanced menu, then choose Consolidate Library, this will copy your files into your designated itunes folder under the directory artist/album. Also the files will be copied and not moved, so after you bring order to the chaos so to speak, you can delete your originals. And iTunes will recognise the change in directory so you wont have to re-add your library!

No one knows what tomorrow may bring, and since music isn't important as to being prepared for tomorrow, I wouldn't even think about it. If you need more room to store your files, then invest into another hard drive, and dedicate it to just your music.Your bitrate quality will really get disturbed if you went to a very low bitate, compared to it's original format/bitrate. And again, if your music sounds good to you, and you like it, leave it be. Don't go making projects out of things you really don't want to be wasting your time on. And yes, I know, the higher the bitrate, the larger the file size. It's your move now... so what are you going to do? I say just get more hard drive/storage space, and you'll nip it in the bud..wma formats, I always convert them to .mp3.Windows Media Player? If you're gonna use it (I see no reason why you would), just be aware that by default it is set to protect your music you rip using it. What that means is that your music is protected and it's virtually held hostage on your computer. Burning it from there won't work either. So, if you're going to use WMP, make sure you uncheck the Protect My Files checkbox. Even still, I'll never trust WMP with my music.Also, there is no reason to try to keep up with the ever growing of music softwares, just to listen to your music. If you use a program that plays your music, and it plays very well, then leave well enough alone. Alot of programs are designed to trick you, (like Windows Media Player), and they will DRM protect your music, and block you from transferring your music from your computer to disc, or where ever else you may want to put your music. Soon, you'll be posting here stating, your music all of a sudden doesn't play, you can't burn anything, your burner doesn't work, the programs you've used before all of a sudden don't work, you can play one file type, and not the other..... and the list goes on and on.Take this advice from someone that knows these computers and will inform you of what you should know about them. Trying to keep up with the Jones' and using the wrong softwares at the same time will get your computer slammed with problems.

A:Media Center and music library

One feature I like with WMP (Windows Media Player) and Windows Media Center is that they have the options to automatically search online and replace incorrect information with your songs, artists, etc. at the same time finding missing information (ie: album cover) however this feature has to be turned on. Go through your preferences and see if you would like this and then turn it on.

My sister just bought one of these (Eposn P-2000 picture viewer and MP3 player).
I have an iPod and when I want to add songs I just connect to my computer and it launches iTunes.
My sister seems to think she can just add MP3's one at a time. She hasn't set up a music library. I told her when you have 100's of song files it makes sense to put them in a library like Windows Media PLayer or iTunes. I don't think the P-2000 supports iTunes. Does anybody know what it does work with, or is it it's own system, and you have to just add songs one at a time.
Thank you,

A:Transferring iTunes music library to new PC

Delete your iTunes Library.itl and iTunes Music Library.xml from the computer with the problem and then re-add the music. They are normally stored in the My Music\iTunes folder but I don't know where they would be stored on your machine. It sounds like you copied the library files over from the computer with all your music on the C drive so the new computer will look for the files on the C drive. The only way to stop this is to delete the library and have it re-find the songs.

My brother just downloaded a bunch of mp3s into my Music folder in my new laptop. I recently bought a 5.5 gen Video iPod and decided to include all these new songs in it. By dragging and dropping them into the iTunes library, they all went in.

That´s what I thought! When I saw the Library list, it was much shorter! I tried to manually drag-and-drop specific mp3s that hadn´t been copied onto the Library list. The ¨plus sign¨ icon indicating a file is being included showed up, but the file is not in there.

I have checked the properties in these files and they are the same as others in the Library, why are they not going thru?

Thanks,

EDIT: I want to also mention that the "library" link/tab is grayed out in WMP12. deleting the appdata did not help! other than that Google full of spam

A:wmp12 "there are no items in your music library"

The "library" is not even a real location...it's just a virtual location that doesn't have any content unless someone chooses to place "files" there by having them imported to that location.  In reality...all that happens (IMO) is that a pointer/shortcut is placed there which points to the real file location and allows it to be accessed/played.
 
I don't even use it on my Win 7 install, preferring to use other players (which do the same thing as WMP without all the unnecessary trash).
 
If WMP doesn't give you the option to "import" files into the library...try another player and sync your files with it.
 
To find the real locations of your music files...you can use a tool like Everything Search Engine - http://www.voidtools.com/ and use the generic file extension (e.g. *.mp3) to find all .mp3 files.

OK I think I have a new problem.
I couldn’t add new music to my library and tried the direction on this site to move/delete WMP database files.
This works fine and I could then add more music …
problem solved but only temporariliy.
Once MP11 rebuilt my library, the problem returned.
So every time I want to add new music, I have to dump the old library database files and rebuild.
This is a problem as it takes three days to rebuild as I have a large music libary.
Any Ideas? Could it be because my library is too big?
Any advice is appreciated.

My operating system is Windows 10 and I am using the latest iTunes version, 12.3.2; the problem I've encountered is that with some CDs, when I download them into iTunes and call up the downloaded file, only one or two of the tracks are shown in black whilst the rest are greyed out. This doesn't prevent the greyed out tracks being played in iTunes, but if I try and burn those tracks to make a compilation CD, they wont burn. There is no such problem with the tracks shown in black (on the same CD). I've tried re-downloading the CD, but it makes no difference. Any ideas how to resolve this problem gratefully received.

From a command prompt go to the directory where all these folders exist.

the list.txt file should have all the directory names for you. It'll also have couple of extra lines you might want to remove for current directory and parent directory.

Hello and thank you for reading,

I have a large digital music collection of about 5,000 songs. I just recently switched from a Windows Computer to a Mac. I transfered the files to the Mac and converted them to AAC - which promptly lost approximately 1,500 songs (I still have the Windows backups).

The library has become quite cumbersome to keep organized. iTunes does not provide an adequately easy interface to manage large amounts of somewhat unorganized files and I am looking for something more powerful.

A quick search online showed me several programs for Windows, but I wasn't able to find anything for Mac OS X. Does anybody have any suggestions for how I might organize this library?

All my Music and playlists are stored in the My Music library as it default too I had about too many playlists and some were duplicated twice so tonight I bit the bullet and I deleted all the Playlists from Metro Music player I then imported my playlists using a right click there is now the correct amount of playlists but some are named incorrectly For example say I have a play list called Abba - Gold Music app now calls it Abba - Gold if I attempt to rename it to Abba - Gold it tells me quot That one's there already try a different name quot This only affects some playlists it seems as though the one's with a bracket and a number after the playlist with the same name already exist but it is not shown I also edited a playlist in WMP desktop tonight and I had to use the import playlist feature again to update the playlist in the Music app and now that playlist has a number next to it as well Does anyone know where the playlists for the music app are stored I'd like to find out and delete everything and start again I'm going from loving Windows to hating it because when I get to a stage where I'm happy with everything then something goes wrong or changes I've spent weeks solid trying to get everything to work as it should and I'm losing patience Thank for your help Tony

A:Windows 8 Music App Media Library frustrations!

This is not an audio problem (this forum section) but more a customization issue.

I'm using my Win 7 system right now and I see C:\Users\myname\Music as one location. Also C:\Users\Public\Music as another. Look in those locations.

I reinstalled Windows 7 - 64 bits on my husbands computer and ran MS updates that I had downloaded on a DVD. Now I wanted to install IE 11, but I receive a message that some MS updates are needed before install IE 11. I ran ALL the updates, only not Silverlight and .NET Framework. Do I need any of them for IE 11 to install?
Also, I partitioned the HD (drive C for Windows and drive D for data). I remember that on Windows XP I was able to move the library (documents, pictures, etc) folder to drive D, so when I needed to restore the backup of the Windows partition, the data were not lost. How can I do the same with Windows 7?
Thank you for any advice.
 

A:IE 11 and library folders

I would advise you to go here and download IE for Windows 7 64-bit. This will update the 32- and 64-bit versions of IE on the PC. It will download some updates during the initial installation, but that's fine.

As for changing the location of files to the D:\ drive? Have a read of this page and follow the instructions.

I am new to the forum. I have been searching for a solution to this problem for a while now and came upon this site by accident. I searched the forums already posted to see if the subject has already been adressed, but could not find any posts concerning my specific problem.

It is not a major problem, just an annoying one. My music library is on my D drive. Media player searches, finds and loads all of my music without any problem. Every time i boot my laptop and open media player, the music is gone and media player has to search the whole computer for all my music files again. It finds them without any problem, but i do not have access to my whole library for an hour on every boot up. Is this normal for windows 7. Did i do something wrong setting up my library and is their a fix for this?

thanks

As an example, The Itunes directory is in My Music. My Music is in a Music library, so the file details in explorer include album, #, etc. Within Itunes is the Apps directory and other data where "album name" doesn't make sense. I want it to display as a non-music directory. There doesn't seem to be any way to set the default columns displayed in a directory within a Music Library without changing how all the directories are displayed. Nor does there seem to be a way to remove a Music Library sub-directory from being considered as a Music Library member.

A:Can I set explorer columns for data directory within music library

Hello EasilyConfused, and welcome to Seven Forums.

From within the Music library, you can change, add, and remove any columns you like.Windows Explorer Columns - Add or Remove
The tutorial below can help show you how to remove folders that you no longer want to be included in the say Music library.Library - Remove a Included Folder
Hope this helps,

A:XP Explorer doesn't display folders/files in "alphabetical" order

Originally posted by rewar:
Recently got a new machine with XP installed. When I copied some data folders and files from my old setup (95), I found they were no longer listed in the same order. The folders and files all have numerical titles representing the date of the data,i.e,
folders for any given year use the month and day numbers as title (mmdd format} and the data files in a given folder use the time as title (hhmm 24hr format). The problem is that XP Explorer ignores any leading zeros in the title, i.e., it sorts the list numerically. My data collection program drops all trailing zeros to save storage space so files for the sequential times 0230, 0630, 2100 are named 023, 063, 21 and then are listed in the numerical order of 21, 023, 063 by XP Explorer.

I figured I have to add the trailing zeros to the old file names and, perhaps, modify the data collection program. But then I noticed that in the Temporary Internet Files folder files are _not_ ordered numerically but "alphabetically" like in 95.

My question then is - Can XP Explorer be set to sort a file list in the same way it does for the Temporary Internet Files folder?

Just right click in any empty space and scroll down and click on
View or Arrang Icons By
but maybe because of it being win95 given a different way of seeing these files, just rename them to way you like. It's been a long time since I've used win95 so sorry little help.

Every time I turn off windows media player and open it back up the music disappeared. It doesn't auto scan the folder. I have to take out a file and put it back in to get it to re-add it, then it adds everything else again. This is really
annoying.

Hi everyone

I dont use libraries and dont like the way that you cant have indivual folder views with them. So when I click on the start menu and have the links for 'music, pictures, video etc' i would like it to link straight to the root folder and not to the library

Does anyone know how to do this?

A:My music etc. in start menu, link to root forlder, not library?

If you right click on the Library
Then go to properties. You can click on the original host folder and delete it and then add your own by clicking on include a folder

I find this to be so lame I don't exactly get why libraries are so useful but for whatever reason they appear to be what MS wants me to use when working with folders because it's a heckuva lot easier to navigate my library folders in the left-side Windows Explorer navigation pane than it is to drill down to those same folders through Computer Users etc So when I'm working with folders in libraries it is impossible to paste a file into any folder that resides hierarchically under a library folder by right clicking on the folder any to folders paste library Cannot You can only choose cut or copy In order to paste a file into a folder to which you have navigated by going the library route you have Cannot paste to any library folders to actually open the folder and right click somewhere in the white space of Cannot paste to any library folders the open folder This is so lame You can right click and paste into Cannot paste to any library folders any of those same folders as long as you access them by going the Computer router It's the same folder for god's sake What do you guys think about this Is it a bug or some kind of 'feature' of which I am somehow failing to see the benefit

I am not able to find the process to delete a folder from my Documents library. The Help function says the following, but I can not find the 'library pane', Includes, nor Locations.When you no longer need to monitor a folder in a library, you can remove it. When you remove a folder from a library, the folder and its contents are not deleted from their original location.
In the taskbar, click the Windows Explorer button.
In the navigation pane (the left pane), click the library that you want to remove folders from.
In the library pane (above the file list), next to Includes, click Locations.
In the dialog box that appears, click the folder you want to remove, click Remove, and then click OK.

hello..

Win VHP 32, v 6.0.6002 SP2, build 6002, WMP v 11.0.6002.18111
(2) newish HP laptops, same CS & WMP v.?s, both recently reformated, all working fine.

1. WMP services & processes stopped,
2. Media Player folder removed fr C:\User\....\Local\Microsoft\.
3. Library of 70GB, 4k folders, 27k files stored on ext. HD, consistently after deleting & rebuilding the Library several folders will not be added,
folders, all music with album art.
4. The individual music files do play when selected individualy from Win Explrer.
5. I am only concerned with a audio library.

I am thinking there must be some kind of attribute on the folders but from what I see they are exactly the same.
Help please. I have removed and rebuilt the libraries to the same results at least 10 times getting the same results.

Any help will be responded to and thanks ahead of time for any efforts on my behalf.
