Not completely sure if this is the right section to be posting this, I know windows explorer isn't exactly an operating system, anyhoo...
The My Documents folder on my computer automatically changed into a music folder, meaning all of its contents can only be sorted by artist name, album name, duration etc. This is a pain because all of these options sort all non music files alphabetically, making newly downloaded files harder to find. They otherwise would just be placed at the bottom of My Documents as I used to have everything sorted by date (the last time it was modified). For whatever reason My Documents does not have a customize tab (the tab where you would normally choose the formatting of the folder to be optimized for music, pictures or standard documents) in its properties panel, so I can't change it back. The monitor on my computer recently died and my computer went unused for about a week while I waited for a new one. Got the new monitor and booted up the system and that was when I noticed the change. Also music files make up a small minority of the files in My Documents, about 20-30 mp3s. There are many more JPEGs and text files so I'm not sure why it would randomly decide to change into a music folder. Don't know if having the computer just sitting for a while had anything to do with it but it is very annoying to me because I download a fair bit of stuff and like to be able to find and organize it all.
I know its a long post for such a small problem but on my new 1920x1080 monitor it looks like just a few lines
Thanks in advance for any help!
