    In Windows 7, why did Microsoft remove the Artist column when selecting column details? They do include Album Artist and Contributing Artist but I have yet to see any app use these. Artist is one of the most important categories for grouping or selecting music. Does anyone know how you can add Artist?

    If you mean in windows media player then there is a column called 'composer' which could deemed to mean the same thing as Artist?
