    Awesome tip. Microsoft makes these things very difficult to find. I appreciate the help!

    Actually, this did not work. The info that was brought up was not attached to my music, it was a general information from somewhere else that didn’t match up.

    To change the Genre on my music I need to go into File Explorer and change it in Details on each track.
