Tag Editor's interface is organized as an Excel-like spreadsheet, where each column represents an audio tag, a file or audio property. Tag Editor displays columns of two types:

  • Editable columns with the metadata, like Artist, Album, Artwork, and others. Those audio tags can be changed and saved. Saved tags are embedded in audio files.
  • Read-only columns, which show File or Audio properties, such as the Duration, Bit Rate, and others, are not editable and can be used to create new tags and remove lower quality duplicates.

By default, Tag Editor shows Artwork, Title, Artist, Album, Genre, Comment and File Name columns. To edit other audio tags, view audio or file properties, you need to show or hide necessary columns.
