Default Arranging icons

I have this folder where i put all my mp3 files, and somehow something has happened and i dont know how to fix it.

Before this somethin has happened i could arrange icons by date (modified)

now, all i can do is arrange it by track, cd, and lots of things that are not helping, and i cant arrange by modified anymore

how can i fix it?!

thank yoU!

This might be because windows has the folder set up that it contains music files

Right click the folder the music is in, and go to Properties, now go to the Customise tab, and select that it is a Document folder from the first list instead of Music.

Hopefully now, it should set it right and should work It might ask 'Do you want to set this for all the other sub folders'. Select yes to set it for all of them.

NOTE TO HELP:

If its music files its set to, you'l find windows will configure itself to allow you to play the files from there and such, and so the menu will be configured for that to with 'Set by Artist', etc

If its set to documents, the same windows menu will apply for data, and arranging by name, etc.

I hope this helps Sorry I didn't see this thread before

Default I'll bet...

I'll bet your player program has tagged the files as music and the property of the player. The player has made an association with the files in other words.
What player are you using?
