    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.

    Thanks.

    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

    HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\SystemFileAssociations\.mp3
    To the Info Tip string value, add
    System.Audio.EncodingBitrate;
