Windows 8.1 -- How do I remove properties displayed in the Details Pane?

Question: Windows 8.1 -- How do I remove properties displayed in the Details Pane?

In Windows 8.1, I want to customize the properties displayed in the Details Pane for ALL of my MP3s . (That is, I do not mean removing/modifying the properties on an individual MP3/music file. I mean choosing what gets displayed in the Details Pane for all music files.)
In XP (which I love and miss), I do believe the Details Pane could be customized easily, but I see no way to do that in 8.1. For example, I want to display Artist, Album, Year, Track #, Size, and Duration ONLY. How do I remove Rating, Genre, Title, etc.
Also, can I remove the "breadcrumbs" (...) and have the full line displayed? In XP, everything was displayed. Now you have to hover over something to see it. How is that better?
I miss XP's file manager!

Preferred Solution: Windows 8.1 -- How do I remove properties displayed in the Details Pane?

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/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

I have a video folder that I would like organize by genre (i.e.: action, drama, comedy, etc.) but Windows isn't allowing me to add or change existing file details.




I consulted this document and realized the following applies to my situation.


Quote:




Some properties can't be added or changed. In those cases, clicking next to the value won't change its appearance.




Is there a work-around? (e.g.:Additional software)

I have this problem with the vista details pane and I have not been able to find any solution. I have Windows Vista 32 bit Home Premium version. The problem is that:
1. My details pane is missing a lot of properties/tags . Only ones that are appearing are file date, file name, dated created.
2. When I go into a MP3 folder, same thing happens as I described in 1. Just the 4 tags appear and I don?t get any other tags that used to be there like artist name, rating, title, etc.
3. I cannot edit any Tag in the details pane. When everthing was working fine, I could go in the MP3 folder , I could edit the title, ratings etc. and Save it. But now I can?t do anything, the save button does not appear and the tags don?t go in edit mode.
Up till now I have tried the following solutions:
1. I have reset all the folder options in Vista by going to Folders/tools/reset defaults. (did not work)
2. After resetting the folders, I have also turned on the details pane option under Organize/Layout and the details under the Views. (did not work)
3. Under View, in the tool bar, I went to Customize This Folder and chose the Music Folder Option, All Items etc. (did not work)

Answer:Missing Properties/Tags in Details Pane

hello

Is this only for mp3 files?

You said "when everything was working fine" what happened? did you download a new program? (itunes,vlc)

If it wasn't that long ago, you could try system restore.

Did you use a "registry cleaner" or an "optimizer"?

On the properties window, general tab, what is it set to "open with"?

good luck

Is there any way to permanently remove or disable all of the various "views" in the Windows 7 Navigation Pane *except* for Details? If a subdirectory contains audio files I *never* want to see "Album" or "Artist" or any of the rest of that garbage. If the subdirectory contains an image file I *never* want to see a thumbnail of images. If I need more information about a file I'll right click on it and select Properties, thankyewverymuch!

In short, when I click anywhere in the left or right panel in the Navigation Pane I never want to see *ANYTHING* except the file name, type, size, and date modified. If it isn't a file (e.g. Network, etc.) just show me a computer or device name, not some massive image of a router or other waste of my time.

How can I re-associate .mp4 files with video details displaying in the Details Pane? After installing the K-lite codecs pack, my mp4's all began displaying in the details pane as audio files (Album, Artist etc) and no longer displays the important video default details (size, frame height, bitrate etc). I assume it was because of incorrectly associating file types when installing the codecs (even though wmv's, avi's are still correct), so I uninstalled the codecs but the Details categories remain for typical audio files. I've exhausted The Google and I'm stumped... any help? (Win7, 32-bit with VLC as my default player) Thanks!

I was wondering if you know if there is a way to improve Vista's Video Preview on the Details Pane.

The problem I see is that Vista shows the very 1st second of video, while Windows 7 shows the 4th. That's why many of the video previews on the details pane show a black screen on vista instead of actual video.





If anyone else has the answer, I will be really grateful.

Hi, I just re-installed windows 7 on my desktop pc and have a question about the settings of the details pane in windows explorer (the one that appears and the bottom when you select a file). Previously when I selected video files (.mp4, .avi and .mkv) I would get the details at the bottom, the video frame width and height, size of file etc.. but since I reinstalled I don't get these details when I select video files. I know its only a small problem but I work with video files a lot and have gotten used to seeing the resolution of files without having to open them. Does anyone know how I can get the details pane to show these details again? At the moment it only displays the video size, name and state.

Here is a screen-shot of the details pane for a selected .mkv video file on my laptop, this is what I want it to display on my pc.

Originally when XP installed, for pictures, when File\Properties was selected the pane had two tabs: 'General' and 'Summary'. Now only the General tab shows in the pane. The Summary could then be expanded to 'Advanced' which showed all the meta data for the picture, i.e. details of the camera, exposure, f number, etc. This was very useful.The change may have occured when I included a Windows update.

Hi,

Recently on Windows 8 file explorer some details started to be displayed on the right hand side.  They can be best described as a large icon with some file information like how many files are stored or what type of file they are. 


Does anyone know how to remove this icon and information.  I find it quite annoying and cannot remove via any of the settings.

Answer:Windows 8 File Explorer - properties displayed on right hand side ?

Sounds like you might have enabled the Preview or Details pane.
In Windows Explorer, click the "View" tab in the Ribbon.  In the "Pane" segment on the left side of the Ribbon, unclick either Preview Pane or Details Pane (whichever is highlighted) and it should go back to "normal".David Coulter | http://DCtheGeek.blogspot.com | @DCtheGeek

I just did a reinstall of XP Pro and am having trouble with video files being "in use" when trying to move/delete them (only a several second lag, but it is annoying me). It has to do with a preview being generated in the details pane in the bottom left corner of Explorer. I eventually figured out how to turn off the preview option on my last install but have forgotten how I did it. Under folder options I have "do not cache thumbnails" unchecked. Is this the setting I need to change? Or is it somewhere else? It seems to me I need an option to not show a preview in the details pane.

Thanks for any suggestions.
 

Answer:How to Turn of Thumbnails in Details Pane?

I haven't done an XP install, but I have had problems like yours. Here is how I fix them without reinstalling, in case it may help? (The instructions may be different for XP.)

Thumbnails are used as icons when the folder is in Thumbnail view. This is usually not the problem, since they are usually cached after the first time. I turn them off by getting the Properties window for that folder. (I just go to the parent folder and right-click on the folder there, then choose Properties.) Then in one of the tabs, I find the Enable thumbnail view option and uncheck it. But, again, this is probably not the problem.

The preview thumbnail (actually, the whole details pane) can be turned off by unchecking View as Web Page in the View menu in one folder. Or, you can turn it off for all folders by going to View menu > Folder Options > General tab > choose Custom, then click the Settings button and in the View Web Content in Folders section, choose Only for folders where I select "as Web Page" [View menu]

If I want the details pane, but not the preview, I edit the HTML of the window. I don't know if you want to try this, it can be confusing, but here's what I do, just in case:
I right-click on the detail pane (or you can use the View menu), and click Customize this Folder... then choose create or edit HTML document. This allows me to customize that details pane. To remove only the worst case files from the preview, I see if I can find "var w... Read more

Hello.

I've been trying to re-organize my photo collection. Previously, I had been using Windows Live Photo Gallery to tag my photos, and admittedly it was convenient. Recently, though, the program has gone on the fritz to where thumbnails aren't loading so it's harder to differentiate photos simply by the file name in cases where I have a lot of photos of the same group or folder. While I've tried a lot of troubleshooting to get the thumbnails to load, and would gladly take advice on that issue, in the meantime I'm trying to accomplish the same thing using the details pane in explorer.

When I highlight a photo right now, most file types load the date stamp, tags, rating, author(s) and comments properties in the details pane. However, I'd like to edit the people properties so I can tag individuals in the photos. I have not seen a way to easily do that short of using other software (such as Photo Gallery).

Does anyone know if there's a way to do this through explorer or will it require a separate application?

Hello! Title says everything
Win 8 Enterprise x64, non local administrator user.

I can not change music's rating or other stuff from details pane. In local administrator user I can. Should I change my account type or any help?

Also the music is at external HDD
Thanks

Answer:The Details pane - Can not modify Music's Rating and stuff

Check that your files haven't suddenly become "Read-only".

Also try running CHKDSK to check the drive.

After I've used one of my external HDDs at TAFE, my PC claims that it is "Read-only" and it takes several CHKDSK commands to fix the problem.
Of course after CHKDSK is finished, it says that there weren't any problems.

Why is there no folder.jpg displayed in Preview Pane for file folders when a view setting of list or details is selected?
(Yes i know about the difference between Details Pane and Preview Pane selection under the File drop down.)

Now if I go in to a folder and select anything, there is a preview, but not out side the folder like there is if I select Large Icons. I cannot see whats inside the folder by selection ether in List or details view. It really sucks because I often have to select Large Icons a scroll down a bunch of boxes rather then hit the arrow down and scroll down each folder looking for it contents.

Now I notice. Shortcuts to folders....will display the folder.jpg inside the folder.
But only short cuts do this.

Any way the change this?

My computer has been having some problems lately and I really do not know what is going on.

I'm running a 2008 Toshiba laptop and about a month ago I started noticing that my cursor would randomly turn into a rainbow? this was the first problem I couldn't figure out, even going through forums and forums. Then I started noticing that every other website was being redirected to random spyware websites, even in the middle of viewing a website for over 3-4 minutes it could just randomly redirect me.

Finally, the most annoying thing of all has happened and I can't find ANYTHING about it; when I plug in my mouse everything works fine, but then i notice if i left click it'll open the property pane and also create a highlighted box.. basically any time i click anything, it acts as if i'm pressing the right click 5 times for every left click. This makes it very very difficult to click on links, play games, or virtually use my lap top at all. I have noticed something though, I swapped out my mouse for another and still had the same problem, BUT my touchpad doesn't have any of the problems above?? is it the driver for my USB mouse malfunctioning?
If you want the shorter version of that: My mouse changes into a rainbow randomly, i'm constantly redirected to websites for no reason, and my mouse will not stop spamming right click even when I left click but my touchpad doesn't have problems.

My previous OS was Windows 7 64-bit. I used rip my favorite music tracks and was able to edit the details in the Details tab of the Properties window after right-clicking on the file name. The system hardware is the same. OS is now Windows 8 64-bit. But when I open the mp3 file's property window and go to the details tab, I get fewer options in detail and I CANNOT edit any one of them. I have run sfc - no problem. I have opened the Explorer as Administrator and still the same issue. Here's the screen capture:

It might help to know that I am the sole user of the desktop PC. And that I have another PC at another place with same configuration also running Win 8 64-bit. On that PC for the same file I see more details on the screen and I can edit the fields. I might post the capture from that PC later when I go there.

Meanwhile, any ideas for this odd behavior? I also ran the mp3Tag to get over the possible issue with ID3 tags.

Nope. The information that is displayed is hard coded to show only "relevant" information. I have no idea why "InternalName" is not included, but you cannot change the display.

Being a developer myself, I've sometimes needed this extended information. But my dev tools have utilities to view such version resource information, so it never really bothered me that Windows never displayed all of it....

Am I being really stupid or is there no way of changing the details displayed and the column widths for a folder AND all of the subfolders it contains.

I know how to customize a folder and its subfolders using the right click properties / customize tab but this doesn't allow for the selection of the details displayed.

I now have a reasonable MP3 folder containing 150+ folders with further subfolders within them, e.g. Music folder then artist folder then albums of said artist folder. I would really like to be able to view the files in details mode and would like to be able to open each folder and have the same details displayed in all of them. What I don't want to do is to have to open each folder and change the details displayed and change the column widths.

I don't think there is way to do it but to open each sub folder and set it up.

There is a button under Tools>folder options>View that lets you set ALL folders to the current folders settings. But there is no button that I know of which will make it do it for only the sub folders.

Using Windows & Home Premium SP1...

I am trying to troubleshoot a problem with my outlook pst files (outlook no longer recognizes it as a pst file following a fresh Office 2010 install- I was using 2010 before the reinstall. I recently had to recover the files from another drive).I noticed the file had a 1982 date (something my sync software occasionally does), thinking that might be the problem).... but I could not change the date on the file!

So I have a more basic problem.

I am administrator. As a test, I created a text file, and can easily change the file name. But I cannot edit any of the attributes under Properties /Details. I want to change the modified date.

If I click on Value, nothing happens (greyed out)

I tried the option to remove personal information - it makes the copy, but I still cannot edit the date.

What are my next steps??

Answer:Cannot edit properties/details of any file

Open Windows Explorer. Navigate to the file you want to edit. Left click once on the file. In the Details Pane at the bottom of the WE window right click to the right of the property you want to edit and that will put the detail in a box where you can edit it.
More importantly sort out why the date is getting changed to an earlier date. Sounds like a duff bios battery to me!

Nothing majorly important, no deadline, no urgency, just wanted to know how to do this in Vista.

Now, I don't demand a lot from an OS (Obviously, seeing as this is the Vista section. SLAMMERTON!), but I love the fact that there are so many properties/details to files, and I can choose which ones display/sort in Windows Explorer. I have a good collection of literature in .pdf form, and I'd like to set certain details to catalog them. I have the folder by default displaying details like Authors, Publisher, Pages, Country/region, Description, Company, Tags, and so on. The problem? All those fields are empty. And, when I go to the individual files' properties (Right-click > Properties > Details), none of those fields appear.

Is there anyway I can edit these fields? Ideally, I'd be able to "batch edit" them, so I don't have to go through one-by-one to give 20 books the same author, but I'd settle for one-by-one.

Or, do they have to be a certain file-type to have these fields editable? The only field I've been able to edit was the "Tags" field, and those could only be image files, and that's only when they were opened individually, in Windows Photo Gallery!

I'm the only account on the PC, UAC is turned off, blah blah blah...

Any words of wisdom will be helpful.

Answer:Changing Details/Properties of Files?

There's something about Windows that has always puzzled me. Let's say you have a directory in which there are some additional directories (folders) and some standalone files. When in that directory you select details for your viewing mode. Right click on a standalone file, select properties and you'll see the file size. Do the same for a folder and you'll see the folder size. This tells you that the information about the size of the file or folder is present. Yet when you select view details, the size of the standalone files is displayed but the size of the folders is not displayed.

The only reason I can imagine Microsoft does this is because they make a bunch of money when people like me get so annoyed with this that we buy software such as folder size (which I use). But I didn't pay one dime for the folder size software, as I got it free from a third party vendor. So the reason can't be because they make a bunch of money selling the folder size software.

Can anyone explain why Microsoft doesn't display the folder size?

Answer:Why is folder size not displayed when viewing in the details mode?

Because it would slow your system down. The sizes of individual folders aren't recorded anywhere on your hard drive; therefore, the size of each file in a folder must be added-up every time you want to know the size of that folder. This process can eat up a lot of resources if you're dealing with large folders. Someone at Microsoft probably just said "It's not worth the trouble!". It's not a conspiracy by the Illuminati.

Hi,I've got Outlook Express 6 and occasionally I get what is obviously a spam email. When this happens, I like to add the sender's email (or domain), as well as the return-path email (or domain) to my Blocked Sender's List on my dial-up provider's Webmail Spam Filter. So when I get one of these messages, I right-click on it and choose Properties. The Details tab, of course, gives you all that information, but sometimes I also click on Message Source at the bottom of the Details tab to see if there are any other email addresses or domains listed in there that I can block. (Actually, you can usually get all the information from the Details tab, so I really didn't mean to click the Message Source this time...)So I'm wondering if everything I've described above is 100% safe to do on a potentially harmful email (whether it may have a virus attached or anything bad that can come with a harmful email)...?

Can anything get onto your computer by doing that?Thanks!

The "Details" which are available are those you see when a list of files is in "Details" view (as opposed to "Icons" or "Tiles" views.In "Details" view, depending on which column categories you have enabled, you are shown such things as filesize, file-date, filetype etc. If you then right-click any column header, you can choose to hide or show more information columns.I can't see how any of that can leave you scratching your head as it's no different to previous versions of Windows in that respect.

Is it possible to remove (hide) the navigation pane in WMP12. I've done searches and scanned the registry and can't seem to find a way. Anyone know if it's possible?

Answer:Remove WMP12 Navigation Pane>

Did an internet search, and searched the Microsoft's forums, could not fine a way to disable it. Not sure why you want to, but that is your choice. Also went into the registry but couldn't see nor determine if there was a way by altering the pane within the registry. Sorry I was unable to help.

And, oh buy the way, Welcome to the Forums.

I tried the tutorial for W7 but did not work: The permission changes on ShellFolder could not be done.
I also want to get rid of the Homegroup icon.
Has anyone come up ways to do these?

Hello Churin,

They still work in Windows 8, but you must take ownership of the ShellFolder key (step 4) first in Windows 8 instead before you will be able to change the Permissions.

Hi,

Was perfect! Now I have another problem... How to Remove MEGA in Navigation Pane of File Explorer in Windows 10

Anyone knows it?

TY!

Answer:How to Remove MEGA in Navigation Pane

If you are referring to MEGA as the Sync client for storage, easiest way is to uninstall MEGA.
If you want to remove the MEGA entry from the navigation pane, but continue to use MEGA, then post a screen shot to show where it is listed.

There may then be a chance of finding a solution

Hope this helps

Ok so I know it is possible to remove things from the libraries pane in explorer which I have done, but this question is not about the explorer libraries pane but it is about the open file/folder/whatever libraries pane. How do you get rid of "Favorites", "Homegroup", and "Network"? If you only use the normal tutorial it will remove it from the open menu of atleast notepad and paint, and I'm sure it does the same for some other windows based programs. But if you use any other program like office when you select open the libraries pane is just how it was at the beginning, how do we change this?

Hope this was clear enough

I want to get rid of these in the save menu too.

I have followed all the steps in the tutorial on removing Favorites from the navigation pane.

Favorites - Add or Remove from Navigation Pane in Windows 8

The right-click solution does not work because "show favourites" option does not come up when I right click. The second solution using the folder option is not possible because there is no option to check or uncheck I have even tried with th bat. file, but no change took place.

I would be grateful for any feedback on this and maybe a little help
