Wow, at last a program I can say something positive about (the others I reviewed earlier today were dogs). Anyway, AudioShell is a useful and very handy context menu tag editor.

AudioShell is ideal when wandering through or sorting directories of AV files--trying to put them into some semblance of order etc. If you're doing general file maintenance and you've a mixture of AV and other files thus it makes sense to work in Explorer, then AudioShell saves you the effort of having to load TagScanner or MP3Tag etc. just to change a few tags.

Works perfectly on my XP SP2 system. So convenient and easy to use. Full marks to the authors. The only thing lacking for me is support for Xvid files.

Ok, I installed this today. I do get tag information when I place the mouse over an mp3 file. However, the Audio Shell editing feature when I right-click > Properties is not there. I tried uninstalling/re-installing & rebooting but it still does not show in the properties window.

Unfortunately there are no FAQ's or any other help at the web page. So, I don't know what is going on with it.

Works perfectly on both my XP-Home and XP-Pro machines, and the authors have been very receptive to suggestions, such as adding support for additional audio file formats.

I have tried two releases of this extension and it has never produced the enhanced properties it claims it does

If you like this try also MP3ext

-last update in '04 but gives your mp3 files a bitrate icon (themeable)as well -sweet

Absolutely amazing.

The only thing I dont like is that yellow balloon popup when hovering my mouse over music and video files is now 10 times as big as it was before using this program.
Quite annoying. I think I might turn off those balloon popups...Ill see.

I've been waiting for a nifty tool like this. Good work. DBpoweramp has a similar function but needs the commercial PowerPack add-on.

I would suggest to make the tag editor available through an 'edit tag' option in the context menu of all audio file types instead of having to visit the properties box first. That would save a couple of mouse clicks.

This is actually very good stuff - a simple, easy-to-use tag editor that's built right into the Windows shell... hover the mouse over a file, you get the info - right-click, you can change the tag info.

It's amazingly useful so you don't have to find and fire up a separate app to fix the tags in your audio files.

Great work. It's simple, stable (so far, apart from one very minor visual glitch), and above all, it's elegant.
