Rip CD would like track 12 to auto display as "01" instead of "1/13"

Hi,
 In the past I have ripped my favorite CD's to mp3 at a relaxed pace. Now,  I am beginning to rip my entire collection with the goal of clearing out the physical space required to store the CD's, and it is going to take quite a while to make it happen.

 The ripping process is going well, and I appreciate FOOBAR 2000's functionality.

 There is one thing that could save me some time. I prefer to have my tracks listed with a formatting such as "01, 02, 03... 13", but when FOOBAR uses one of the tagging databases to auto populate the tag fields I end up with a formatting such as "1/13, 2/13, 3/13...  13/13".

 I have been revising the number sequence by hand, and that's OK, but if it is possible to get the results I am hoping for automatically then it could save me a little time and fully optimize my conversion process.

 Is this possible?

 Thank you!

Select tracks, right click->Properties->"Tools" button->Auto track number. Assuming that tracks have correct %album% tag, you can do this for multiple albums in one go.

Thank you.

I followed your advice, and when I went to make the changes the listing was already formatted as I have been hoping it would appear.

I should have mentioned that I rip in Foobar2000, then check and edit the Tags with MP3Tag, I did not see the files in a FOOBAR playlist until after working in MP3Tag and then opening the files for playback testing in FOOBAR2000.

In MP3Tag the track number appears in the n/total tracks format, so I had been editing them to appear as integers, but now I realize that I did not have too because FOOBAR displays them as I wish.

Now, I realize I should have asked this question with regards to MP3Tag rather than FOOBAR2000.

Thank you!
