Using Windows XP Pro, sp3.

I use the folder's "Comments" detail, for all folders, but especially for my MP3 collection.

I would like to increase the length of this detail from the default of about 50 (I really haven't counted) to the max (probably 255).

This is more than likely a registry tweak, but I can't find a thing about it!

Any suggestions would be helpful.

Thanks for your time and suggestions in advance,

I added a comment to one of my MP3 files...the max it would display was 79 characters...even though I entered 140. I haven't found anything about the maximum amount of characters allowed either.
In testing...I entered the numbers 1 ->0 and at the end of each entry I used CTRL+ENTER to force a link break...
Even with the line break, the comments still showed as 1 continuous line...so having a very long comment would cause the opened window to be extremely wide...to show the entire Comments column...and even then would probably not show the entire comment.

As a safety concern, GBJim...I would not post an email address in posts, as this could lead to a lot of spammed messages.
