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.

Tutorial:

Basically:
  • Read through the tutorial
  • Choose "Music" template
  • Set your desired options:
    • "View" (Icons, Details, etc.)
    • "Columns"
    • "Sort by"
  • Choose "Apply to Folders" (Folder Options > View tab)
