Viewing Bitrates in a Window

In a folder window, that has music files.

You know how you can choose to see details of files in a folder? Well I was wondering if you could see their bitrates in the folder without having to right click each MP3 file to see their properties.

I imagine it's something like "Content" (which is one of the folder view options) since that displays the files' sizes and their length times, but not bitrate...and I was wondering if there's a way I can see bitrates inside a folder window.


Still wondering about this...

In the details view, there is a bit rate (MS's spelling) column view option.

You can also change tooltip info for individual file types under HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\SystemFileAssociations

e.g To add bitrate to mp3 tooltip

To the Info Tip string value, add
