I googled the problem and NOTHING!!!!! many information NO LONGER is displayed in my details pane in Windows Explorer!!!!!! song length is one of them gone missing (& total length if multiple files are selected) and I use that frequently!!!!! it ONLY shows basic information now such as artist, title, album, and genre!!! but total length is GONE!!! also MANY UNRELATED INFORMATION is now in the details pane for media files!!!!!!! mood of music has been added (never heard of that tag), song rating, and composer now have been added!!!! it even displays ALL THIS SAME INFORMATION for WAV files when it used to be ONLY file size and length for WAV files!!!!!!! WAV is NOT capable of tags so I don't know why Windows Explorer shows this information for WAV files!!!!!!

 

HOW DO I GET MY DETAILS PANE BACK TO NORMAL???????

Open Windows Explorer.

 

Next open the folder the music is in.

 

Click View in the toolbar, then click Choose details.

 

Go through the list. UNCHECK anything you don't want listed in details pane.

 

Check what you do want listed. When finished click OK.

 

IF YOU DO NOT SEE THE TOOLBAR WITH FILE, EDIT, VIEW, etc. click the drop down arrow next to Organize/Layout/click Menu Bar.

Again, can you post a screen shot of what you're seeing?

 

The instructions provided by Queen-Evie will allow you to add back the length.

Please specify what you mean by details pane.

My answer is based on the details pane I see at the bottom of the page. Yes, that is actually called DETAILS PANE. Please keep in mind that you need to be specific especially when a term might have more than one meaning.

Moltres Rider the information you were provided is correct.  Without a screen shot from you showing what you are seeing we are not going to be able to help you.

Yes a screen shot would be useful.
 
Because the details pane is re-sizable, you can drag its top border up a bit. As the details pane grows larger, it starts to reveal more information about your highlighted file. So you could give that a try.
The power of accurate observation is commonly called cynicism by those who haven't got it.

I don't know how exactly to put an image here, but I think you've all missed what the poster is trying to achieve. Since I am trying to achieve a similar thing I shall try to explain from my perspective.

 

If you right click on the media file in the pane you have posted [not here in the forum, on your computer] and go to properties it allows you to go to details, where you can [hopefully] add info such as Title, Artist, Album, Track No, etc. That is the details screen the poster is talking of... not the screen you have posted.

 

In my case I am trying to add details not already entered to a .wav file but finding myself unable to. I have given full permission to the 3 accounts shown but it has not changed my ability to add these details.

 

I can do it on mp3s but the lossy format changes the quality & I'm trying to burn an audio cd so I don't want the loss of quality Can anyone help?

Have you tried using Itunes or Winamp? These programs can scan your computer and add the information to your songs, If you have the same problems with them then the problem is deper, if you can get the info you want using them then you shouldn't have to worry about it anymore.
