Unable To Edit MP3 Properties In Windows 8

Oct 29, 2013

I have just recently acquired a brand new laptop running Windows 8, and I'm experiencing an issue with editing the details of MP3 files. I can right-click any MP3 to open its properties and access the Details tab, but when I click on the fields for the different tags, nothing happens.

I don't recall ever having this issue on my previous laptop with Windows Vista, so I'm at loss trying to understand what is going on here. I'm not very tech savvy about the subject of permissions and accessibility, but it doesn't really seem to be related to that. The files are listed under my local user directory.

Win 8 64bit - Can't Edit MP3 Details In Properties

Aug 28, 2013

My previous OS was Windows 7 64-bit. I used rip my favorite music tracks and was able to edit the details in the Details tab of the Properties window after right-clicking on the file name. The system hardware is the same. OS is now Windows 8 64-bit. But when I open the mp3 file's property window and go to the details tab, I get fewer options in detail and I CANNOT edit any one of them. I have run sfc - no problem. I have opened the Explorer as Administrator and still the same issue. Here's the screen capture:

I am the sole user of the desktop PC. And that I have another PC at another place with same configuration also running Win 8 64-bit. On that PC for the same file I see more details on the screen and I can edit the fields. I might post the capture from that PC later when I go there. I also ran the mp3Tag to get over the possible issue with ID3 tags.

Unable To Edit Hosts File Due To Administrator Rights?

Jun 15, 2014

I am getting error "Save failed - Please check if this file is opened in another program" when trying to edit the hosts file in Notepad++. This has only started happening after a fresh installation of Windows 8 on a new computer. My previous computer with Windows 8.1 was able to do it correctly without any errors. I am using only one account on both computers, but for some reason on the new computer, the UAC keeps getting in the way. I have lowered the UAC warnings all the way down but that hasn't worked. Is there another setting I'm missing?

Note that I don't want to right-click Notepad++ and choose "Run as administrator" every time I want to edit a system file. I see that as a waste of time and an unnecessary step since I am already using an administrator account. I didn't have to do that on the old computer.

Network / Sharing :: Unable To Access Properties Of Network Connection

Mar 9, 2013

This is a fairly new install of Windows 8 pro (within the last month), and while trying to set up a static ip up today I found that I was unable to access the network properties or disable the connection in the Network Connections. I am pretty stumped as I am the only user of this computer and from what I can tell have the correct permissions to do so. When trying to check the properties it tells me "an unexpected error has occurred" with no further information.

Can't Edit Files In Windows Apps Folder?

Nov 6, 2013

There was a Metro app that I installed that I liked the functionality of but didn't like the fonts for; I knew where the configuration was to change the appearance (a CSS file in the C:Program FilesWindowsApps<app name> directory),

but when I tried to modify the file, it kept giving me an "Access is denied." error without any extra information.

I tried changing the ownership of the apps folder to my own account; didn't work. Changed the ownership of that specific file, and all the other files within that folder; still not allowed. I went into the PowerShell as administrator and tried copying or renaming the file; still "Access is denied." and nothing else.

Is there a way to make this file editable, or is the access blocked on a system level? I just want to change a few fonts around, but if Microsoft is trying to prevent me from doing so in order to protect its walled garden, then I'm afraid I'm going to have to give up on Windows 8.

Windows 8 Can't Edit Master Boot Record?

Nov 17, 2012

I haven't found anything about dual booting when Win7 is on a RAID0 volume.

I've already tried a couple of different ways and keep getting the same error message......Win8 can't edit the master boot record, which I believe it can't because it can't find it due to the fact its on a RAID0 volume.

I'm not about to pop the RAID0 volume and have nothing but Win8 when not everything will work with it yet.

Windows 8 Enterprise 64 Bit - Can't Edit Hosts Nor Run Anything As Admin

Aug 23, 2013

First, I tried to edit the 'hosts' file but wasn't let save the change as having no permission. I'm the only user and administrator. I took over ownership and gave full rights to myself, rebooted, still the same.

Second, I tried to run notepad as administrator for the same reason. It wouldn't open. Then, I wanted to start it from an elevated command prompt, but cmd didn't start as admin either. This, like notepad, opened nicely as 'normal', neither as admin.

I run Windows 8 Enterprise 64 bit.

Network / Sharing :: Windows 8 Cannot Access Wireless Properties Or Save Password

Dec 28, 2012

Every time I sign into my windows 8 account at home it never automatically connects to it. I tried following the tutorial at [URL]......

However when I get up to the part where you are support to right click on the wifi connection to access view connection properties I am unable to. Right clicking on the wireless connection does absolutely nothing. I even tried clicking on it and holding and still nothing.

When I go to the network and sharing center and click on the wireless connection it pops up a dialogue called wi-fi status. However there is no button for wireless properties. I remember in windows 7 there use to be a tab where you change the key encryption type and there was a check box where you can save the password. Essentially I can't access the dialog box in page 10 of the above link.

How To Get To Properties Of A Shortcut In Win 8

May 3, 2013

But I'm afraid there is not a setting in Windows 8 to get this done. Okay, then I handle the programs seperately! Until Windows 8 I could always rightclick a shortcut, then get "Properties", then I chose "Maximized". But to my unpleasant surprise I only get the latest documents (Which is very handy indeed!), and a choice to "Loosen the program of the taskbar".

Setup Installation :: Windows 8 - Registry Edit Required To Get Some Software To Work

May 12, 2014

One of our software providers has instructed us to make some changes to our Win 8 PC's registry to get the software to work properly. They have sent me details of what changes are required:

Open Windows Registry Editor (Regedit)
For each entry:
TYPE: Select Allow Applies to: Select This key and subkeys
Click/Check: Full control and Read
Click OK on Entry detail screen
Click OK on Entries list screen

I know very little about Windows Registry other than not to touch it. These changes seem quite extreme.

No Navigation Tab On Taskbar Properties

Nov 23, 2013

I cannot seem to get the "taskbar and navigation properties" pane, only the "taskbar properties" pane. I am running as administrator and have upgraded from Windows 8 to Windows 8.1 on a new laptap that I have just purchased, but am still having trouble getting the "taskbar and navigation properties" when I right click the taskbar.

The "taskbar properties" only gives me three tabs ie. taskbar, jump lists and properties, but I need to access the navigation tab on the "taskbar and navigation properties" pane.

My Computer / Properties Causes Desktop To Reload

I am running an AMD Athlon 4400+, overclocked 7%. I am going to set it back to 5% and see if this continues.

I have this entry in my system log:

Properties Option In Menus Not Work Normally?

Jan 17, 2014

First of all I want to say that this is not much big of a deal to me but still annoying nonetheless. I noticed that in some scenarios, for some reason, the "Properties" option in the rightclick menu of a file doesn't do anything when clicked on. You'd expect that a properties box of the concerning file would show up but nothing is happening. So far I noticed this in the following 2 scenarios:

1. When selecting multiple files in the Recycle Bin at once and then right click and choose Properties. Selecting only one file in the recycle bin and clicking Properties does work normally.
2. When right clicking on a picture that is shown with Windows Photo Viewer and then choosing Properties.

Are these bugs that Microsoft developers might have missed or is my PC at fault here? I'm running Windows 8.1 Pro x64 with Medica Center.

Different Characters In File Properties Instead Of Numbers

Feb 1, 2014

I am using a Dell laptop with Windows 8 Home. The file Properties show strange symbol-type characters where there should be numbers etc. See Screenshot...

It's been like this for a while and I have probably installed half a dozen programs etc. so I don't know what did it. I don't want to upgrade to v.8.1 as it took me ages to get a 3rd party Start button set up and 8.1 over-writes it I rolled back to a previous image of v.8.0 (True Image not System Restore).
