Windows Explorer

Archived from groups: microsoft.public.windowsxp.general (More info?)

I have an odd problem with Windows Explorer. I view my music sorted by
artist. The start of the list looks just that way. When I scroll
through the list I find various artists songs in other parts of the
list - usually grouped together. I don't understand this. Is there
something about the artist's name that is hidden or is this something
that Explorer just does? Is there some way I can get all of each
artist's songs grouped together in one place or am I just going to have
to live with it?

    If you use Windows Media Player you can scan for audio files on our computer
    and list them by artist or genre or make your own play lists.

    Thanks for your response.

    I have three players, one of which is WMP, that I am evaluating. There are
    plusses and minuses. However, I want to use Windows Explorer to manage the
    entire collection. I know there are duplications but is hard to find them
    when an artist's songs are listed in three or four locations in the list
    That leaves me with my original question. Is there any way to get all of an
    artist's songs listed once?
