    Explorer Sort By Presets?

    I am wondering if it is possible to modify the presets of the sort by in Windows 7/8/8.1?

    I have a pretty big music folder with multiple folders. I want to sort them by Bit rates and other things. But I have so many folders I have to go into and add this new option into the sort by.

    Is it possible to add the option below to the select-able options on right click?

    You should be able to set a Folder Template for your music folders.
