Folder view changes due to updates?

Strange problem

I open a Music Project folder on Drive D and have the view set at Details i can see when the projects been modified and the file type "File folder"

On opening one of these folders from earlier this year i can see name,date,type and size

Opening a more recent folder since March and choosing Details view i get name,title,album,contributing artists

Is this something to do with an update?

I am confused,difficult to explain

I suppose in simple terms if Folder view is set to details the contents headers are different in recent folders to earlier ones

Mart, you can add or remove column headings simply by right-clicking on one then select the ones you want and deselect those you don't.

You can also resize and/or change the position of the columns by clicking and dragging.

Windows should remember your preferences every time you open the folder.

Thank you i did not know that

Why though would the layout change? Is it a Windows update?

It's possible although we'll never know for sure. The last big update broke both my email clients so perhaps you got off lightly ;)

Hopefully you'll be able to put the column headings back to how you want them and they'll stay like that forever.
