How to Change MP3 File Attributes

Save

MP3 files contain more than just a title and an extension. They also come equipped with ID tags, which hold information such as artist name, album, year and genre. Music programs use this information to provide you with specific information while you listen to your music, but sometimes they will contain missing or inaccurate information. You can edit these attributes by accessing the MP3 properties and manually changing the information.

For Windows Users

  • Right-click the MP3 file.

  • Select “Properties->Summary->Advanced” from your list of options.

  • Click inside the desired fields to type in the appropriate information.

  • Click “OK” when finished.

For Mac and Other iTunes Users

  • Open the MP3 in iTunes.

  • Select “Get Info” from the “File” Menu.

  • Click the “Info” tab that appears in the main window.

  • Click inside the desired fields to type in the appropriate information.

  • Click “OK” when finished.

Tips & Warnings

  • Many other digital audio programs such as Quicktime and Windows Media Player will also allow you to edit the attributes of a song. Simply search for “Options” or “Properties” in your main menu to see if you can access these features in your chosen software.
