Adding properties to details pane

Q: Adding properties to details pane

I have a video folder that I would like organize by genre (i.e.: action, drama, comedy, etc.) but Windows isn't allowing me to add or change existing file details.




I consulted this document and realized the following applies to my situation.


Quote:




Some properties can't be added or changed. In those cases, clicking next to the value won't change its appearance.




Is there a work-around? (e.g.:Additional software)

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

I have this problem with the vista details pane and I have not been able to find any solution. I have Windows Vista 32 bit Home Premium version. The problem is that:
1. My details pane is missing a lot of properties/tags . Only ones that are appearing are file date, file name, dated created.
2. When I go into a MP3 folder, same thing happens as I described in 1. Just the 4 tags appear and I don?t get any other tags that used to be there like artist name, rating, title, etc.
3. I cannot edit any Tag in the details pane. When everthing was working fine, I could go in the MP3 folder , I could edit the title, ratings etc. and Save it. But now I can?t do anything, the save button does not appear and the tags don?t go in edit mode.
Up till now I have tried the following solutions:
1. I have reset all the folder options in Vista by going to Folders/tools/reset defaults. (did not work)
2. After resetting the folders, I have also turned on the details pane option under Organize/Layout and the details under the Views. (did not work)
3. Under View, in the tool bar, I went to Customize This Folder and chose the Music Folder Option, All Items etc. (did not work)
4. Then on the Microsoft site, I found this solution ? Open Documents by clicking the Start button , and then clicking Documents., and click a file to apply properties.

How can I re-associate .mp4 files with video details displaying in the Details Pane? After installing the K-lite codecs pack, my mp4's all began displaying in the details pane as audio files (Album, Artist etc) and no longer displays the important video default details (size, frame height, bitrate etc). I assume it was because of incorrectly associating file types when installing the codecs (even though wmv's, avi's are still correct), so I uninstalled the codecs but the Details categories remain for typical audio files. I've exhausted The Google and I'm stumped... any help? (Win7, 32-bit with VLC as my default player) Thanks!

Hi,

I'm using Windows 7 Professional x64. When I use Windows Explorer to view image files (jpg, png, etc.), I would like to see each image's dimensions listed in the Details Pane (when it's set to view the images as Icons/Thumbnails, rather than Details). However, the only details that show up in the Details Pane are Name, Type, Date Created, Date Modified, and Size. This is the case even though:

* I've checked 'Dimensions' in the 'Choose Details' options
* The folder is already categorized/optimized for 'Pictures'
* Other folders show the other details I want -- i.e., the Details Pane for my 'Videos' folder shows Length, Frame Width, Frame Height, and other details that I've chosen

Any suggestions are appreciated. Thanks.

3. Edit the PreviewDetails string.

Is there any way to permanently remove or disable all of the various "views" in the Windows 7 Navigation Pane *except* for Details? If a subdirectory contains audio files I *never* want to see "Album" or "Artist" or any of the rest of that garbage. If the subdirectory contains an image file I *never* want to see a thumbnail of images. If I need more information about a file I'll right click on it and select Properties, thankyewverymuch!

In short, when I click anywhere in the left or right panel in the Navigation Pane I never want to see *ANYTHING* except the file name, type, size, and date modified.

Hello.

I've been trying to re-organize my photo collection. Previously, I had been using Windows Live Photo Gallery to tag my photos, and admittedly it was convenient. Recently, though, the program has gone on the fritz to where thumbnails aren't loading so it's harder to differentiate photos simply by the file name in cases where I have a lot of photos of the same group or folder. While I've tried a lot of troubleshooting to get the thumbnails to load, and would gladly take advice on that issue, in the meantime I'm trying to accomplish the same thing using the details pane in explorer.

When I highlight a photo right now, most file types load the date stamp, tags, rating, author(s) and comments properties in the details pane. However, I'd like to edit the people properties so I can tag individuals in the photos. I have not seen a way to easily do that short of using other software (such as Photo Gallery).

Does anyone know if there's a way to do this through explorer or will it require a separate application?

Recently I was trying to add comments to movie folders so that i can keep a brief description about it when i click on it. It was easy to add comment then i had a bit trouble to get the comment getting displayed in the details pane...after playing with the registry for a while i got that solved as well.
Now I ended up with a problem where the comment being displayed eds with just some 3 or 4 words with the remaining given in dots (...) and I get a full display of it when i hover the mouse over it, which obviously goes way in 5 seconds or so.

So what i need is to find a way to expand what ever that is shown in the details pane so that it shows the entire content in consecutive lines without being restricted to one line (without having to hover a mouse)

You might get a picture of it if you have a small details pane on the right and make it show your processor details when you open thisPC.

Nope. The information that is displayed is hard coded to show only "relevant" information. I have no idea why "InternalName" is not included, but you cannot change the display.

Being a developer myself, I've sometimes needed this extended information. But my dev tools have utilities to view such version resource information, so it never really bothered me that Windows never displayed all of it....

My computer has been having some problems lately and I really do not know what is going on.

I'm running a 2008 Toshiba laptop and about a month ago I started noticing that my cursor would randomly turn into a rainbow? this was the first problem I couldn't figure out, even going through forums and forums. Then I started noticing that every other website was being redirected to random spyware websites, even in the middle of viewing a website for over 3-4 minutes it could just randomly redirect me.

Finally, the most annoying thing of all has happened and I can't find ANYTHING about it; when I plug in my mouse everything works fine, but then i notice if i left click it'll open the property pane and also create a highlighted box.. basically any time i click anything, it acts as if i'm pressing the right click 5 times for every left click. This makes it very very difficult to click on links, play games, or virtually use my lap top at all. I have noticed something though, I swapped out my mouse for another and still had the same problem, BUT my touchpad doesn't have any of the problems above?? is it the driver for my USB mouse malfunctioning?
If you want the shorter version of that: My mouse changes into a rainbow randomly, i'm constantly redirected to websites for no reason, and my mouse will not stop spamming right click even when I left click but my touchpad doesn't have problems.

I am trying to troubleshoot a problem with my outlook pst files (outlook no longer recognizes it as a pst file following a fresh Office 2010 install- I was using 2010 before the reinstall. I recently had to recover the files from another drive).I noticed the file had a 1982 date (something my sync software occasionally does), thinking that might be the problem).... but I could not change the date on the file!

So I have a more basic problem.

I am administrator. As a test, I created a text file, and can easily change the file name. But I cannot edit any of the attributes under Properties /Details. I want to change the modified date.

Open Windows Explorer. Navigate to the file you want to edit. Left click once on the file. In the Details Pane at the bottom of the WE window right click to the right of the property you want to edit and that will put the detail in a box where you can edit it.
More importantly sort out why the date is getting changed to an earlier date. Sounds like a duff bios battery to me!

Nothing majorly important, no deadline, no urgency, just wanted to know how to do this in Vista.

Now, I don't demand a lot from an OS (Obviously, seeing as this is the Vista section. SLAMMERTON!), but I love the fact that there are so many properties/details to files, and I can choose which ones display/sort in Windows Explorer. I have a good collection of literature in .pdf form, and I'd like to set certain details to catalog them. I have the folder by default displaying details like Authors, Publisher, Pages, Country/region, Description, Company, Tags, and so on. The problem? All those fields are empty. And, when I go to the individual files' properties (Right-click > Properties > Details), none of those fields appear.

Is there anyway I can edit these fields? Ideally, I'd be able to "batch edit" them, so I don't have to go through one-by-one to give 20 books the same author, but I'd settle for one-by-one.

Or, do they have to be a certain file-type to have these fields editable? The only field I've been able to edit was the "Tags" field, and those could only be image files, and that's only when they were opened individually, in Windows Photo Gallery!

I'm the only account on the PC, UAC is turned off, blah blah blah...

When this happens, I like to add the sender's email (or domain), as well as the return-path email (or domain) to my Blocked Sender's List on my dial-up provider's Webmail Spam Filter. So when I get one of these messages, I right-click on it and choose Properties.

Hello Asdf123,

That's what the Favorites folder is for, but I suppose that you could create and use a Download Library instead to accomplish this.

Hello, this if my first forum post, pretty much ever. I'm an aspiring author, so I use Microsoft office Word 2010 quite a bit on my laptop. I tried adding properties to my latest document such as Author, and my computer kept coming back to me with the error code 0x80004005. I know that the properties aren't exactly a big deal on a word document, but I'm trying to figure out how to fix my various computer issues whenever they come up. If anyone has ever run across this error in the way I have, please let me know. I'm a bit of a computer novice, so please, don't use too many computer savvy terms while trying to explain it, thank you.

A:Error 0x80004005 While adding details to word document

Hi, welcome to Seen Forums.

Are you using Norton Anti-virus by chance? I had a customer a number of years ago who had this problem. Was related to Norton's script blocking

Also, have you checked out this post for other ideas... error 0x80004005

Hi all.

Does anyone know how to add custom information to Control Panel\System window that comes up when right clicking on My Computer and going to Properties?

I know about the OEM registry key information where I can change the support phone number and website and change the manufacturer name. I was wondering if there is a way to add a whole new section to this page though with all custom information in it. Any help would be greatly appreciated and thank you in advance.

Hello,
 I would like to obtain few details about Microsoft message analyzer.
1. Does this support TCP, UDP, IPV4 and V6 and UDS (Unified Diagnostics Services) protocol?
2. Does it support adding new plugins ?
Can I write an own plugin which for example performs the following:  displays the statistics, display check sum, export the files and save into .csv
format. Then integrate the plugin into message analyzer.
3. What is the cost of the product ? ( Does it have a freeware or proprietary license)
4. What is the hardware requirements needed by this software ?
5. Does it require any external hardware analyzer or does it sniff directly  the below network for example: Sniff the 2 microcontrollers communicating on ethernet by connecting an ethernet cable between them and display the packets using this software
on the PC.

6. Does it also support promiscous mode (find below the use case) ?
Use Case : 2 microcontrollers are communicating through ethernet. Between the 2 microcontrollers, I would like to sniff and observe the packets in this software. Because in this case, the packets are not addressed to this PC.
7. Please let me know can I add a custom protocol (in the application layer) as a plugin?
Thank you.

Having decided to use Vista's Mail/Contacts/Calendar, I was quite excited to see that when I hovered the mouse over the Extra Large Icon of a contact, all of his details appeared in the right hand side preview panel ...... for a moment!

Now that capability has disappeared altogether!

I have checked under Organize x Layout that the Preview Panel is checked but it remains blank all the time!

What have I (it) done to remove this handy feature?
........... but there's more ................. the contact's name comes up say michael smith.contact but I only want Michael Smith to show (not the word "contact").
When I try to rename it to a straight Michael Smith, Vista gets all upset and starts tellimg me that it probably won't work anymore if I persist!!

There's gotta be a way to rename these contacts!
