I have Win 7 Professional 64bit and have Hundreds of thousands of folders and or files in my PC spread across 4 drives. I want to have all my folders in the following format FileName|dateModified|FileType|Size but you cant do that modification to the root of a drive and apply to all sub folders. I am tired of Windows deciding because the file has an mpe or wav extension that I want to see Artist|Album|rating etc. it's a major PITA for me. Cant I somehow set the whole drive in my custom format?

TIA any help would be appreciated

Hi Mtech,

Welcome to HTG :)
I don't have 7 installed myself, so I can't say for sure, but in Vista I finally got it to work for me
(Microsoft not being so bad after all <LOL>). You find it here.

Please post back and let us know if it worked for you ;)

from what i have read and seen (i too dont have win 7 till tomorrow) there is something called jumplists i believe. i remeber you can make one folder to pin, and then you pick which files/folders you want to be shown in that one folder (so its basically what you are looking for, basically make a folder, and add whatever you want to be viewed)

hope this helps!
