Edit File Properties For MP3 Files In Windows 7

If we upgraded from Vista Home Premium to Windows 7 Ultimate,sometimes we can't change the artist, album, genre, etc. info on any of the music files and when we go to the file's Properties and under the Details tab, or with the tags at the bottom of the Windows Explorer.

If we try to change something and click apply or OK, it just changes right back. We have all the permissions checked under the account also tried unchecking the Read-Only attribute of the folder and files, but  after we click apply or OK, again, it changes back when we reopen the dialog box.There are several other threads with the same problem, but none have a satisfactory answer/solution.

Take a file from C:\Users\Public\Music\Sample Music and test it.
To troubleshoot this issue, you can try the following steps:
Enable built-in admin account
  • Click Start, click "All Programs", please find and open "Accessories" folder.
  • Please right-click on "Command Prompt" item and select "Run as administrator".
  • Please type the following command line in to the coming window.
net user administrator /active:yes
Note: There is a space between "Administrator" and "/active:yes".
  • Log off and log on the Administrator account.
