Displaying Details about an Audio File

Audio files have a lot of extra attributes that other files don't have. For example, an audio file may contain information about its title, the artist, album, genre, etc. You can display the details about an audio file in a couple of ways. Perhaps the simplest way is to right-click the file and select Properties from the Context menu. Windows displays the Properties dialog box for the file, with all of the details in a scrollable list. (See Figure 1.)

As explained in another tip, you can also customize Windows Explorer (Windows 7) or File Explorer (Windows 8) so that it will display as many of these details as you like in the Explorer details pane. Simply right-click a column header, select "More...", and choose which attributes you want displayed in Explorer. This would be a useful modification if you keep all of your audio files in one folder.

This tip (12373) applies to Windows 7 and 8.
