    Windows 8

    Hopefully I've narrowed it down to a Razer Keyboard update that was in the Windows update. Uninstalled all the drivers and reinstalled the drivers from Razer and so far I've been good to go. We'll see ...

    Windows 8.1

    I have this issue with all the updates and it's now 2016 so I thought I'd post to let others know you can also use the System File checker (SFC) to do a scan to check for any corrupted system files that might be causing this problem...

    1. Press Windows key + X, select Command prompt (Admin) to bring up elevated command prompt
    2. In the command prompt type the following command: sfc/scannow and press enter
    3. Now, restart the computer.

When I connect my Android phone to my computer via USB to access storage, it treats all the folders as music folders - this means that in Details view I don't get "date modified" but "track number", "artist", "album", etc.. despite this being completely irrelevant to the content of all but a single...
