On my XP computers in Explorer the right-click context menu for a folder will show "Enqueue in Foobar2000" and "Play in Foobar2000" entries if there are audio files in that folder. On all my Windows 7 and later computers, these entries are not present. If I want to play the contents of that folder, I must enter the folder and select the audio files manually, at which point I DO get a "Play in Foobar2000" option (but not "Enqueue"). Why is that? Can I change the behavior of my Win7 and later computers to be like that of XP?
What I'd like to figure out is to how to get Windows to permanently stop trying to be helpful and taking folders with music in them and displaying them differently than general use folders. I know how to do this on a folder-by-folder basis, including child folders, but I've never figured out how to turn it off completely so that it stops trying to customize folders in the first place.One side effect of this behavior is that on these folders, Windows overrides the foobar context entries with WMP.
