Please be aware that much of the software linked to or mentioned on this forum is niche and therefore infrequently downloaded. Lots of anti-virus scanners and so-called malware detectors like to flag infrequently downloaded software as bad until it is either downloaded enough times, or its developer actually bothers with getting each individual release allow listed by every single AV vendor. You can do many people a great favor when encountering such a "problem" example by submitting them to your AV vendor for examination. For almost everything on this forum, it is a false positive.

Song Naming/Tagging

Hey guys, new here so don't really know my way around the place so if this is in the wrong topic, my bad.
So i just recently reorganized/renamed my entire playlist of songs, but i only renamed their names, not their tags in their properties, and foobar apparently takes the song info from their tags, is there any way to force it to take the name/make new tags from the filenames of the songs? :D

You can have the playlist view show anything you want, and then you can sort by that as desired.  If you right-click the columns header bar above the playlist, "File Name" is already a built-in column option.  If you want something more customized, just go into Preferences/Display/Default User Interface/Playlist View, and add  your own view choice based on the syntax tables shown in Help/Title Formatting Help,  "%filename%" being one of those, which will then show up on the same context menu.

Thank you!
