How can I edit file summaries without going into file properties in Windows?

I’m currently managing my files by entering categories into them. But I have to open file properties and go to the summary tab to enter the category for every single file and I have lots of them. So, is there any software to make the it easier?

    Hello you could also try File Property Edit Pro. It is a paid software though...but you have a 30 day trial:

    or File Attributes:

    not have Office installed

      Thanks, but I don't use VBA, and I don't know about programming.

    Hello, have a read of this article:
    http://www.codeguru.com/cpp/com-tech/shell/general/article.php/c7353

    To accomplish what you are doing at the moment but with less steps you can try the following:

    -- click on file
    -- press alt+enter
    -- press ctrl+tab
    -- type info
    -- press ctrl+tab
