Changing Titles/Artist Info in WMP 10

How can I change the artist/title info using WMP 10. I think there should be a way to change this info (there is in MusicMatch), but I haven't been able to find it on WMP.

Thanks for your help.

Editting song Information

In reply to: Changing Titles/Artist Info in WMP 10

right click on the song in the playlist, and choose Advanced Tag Editor.
Is that what you are looking for?

Thanks...when I tried this...

it changed it but the next time I click on the file it reverts back to the original info that I had hoped to change. I tried it a couple of times and got the same result every time.

Any ideas on this?

Finding the music file on your computer, i.e. Start My Music, find the file, right click on it, choose properties and click the Summary Tab, then Click the Advanced button towards the bottom of the summary tab. You can change the individual information there. This should do it for you.
