My secondary drives are both set as music folder for some reason. Meaning the music tasks are listed down the side and there is the little background picture of a music note in the corner. I can change this for the subfolders by highlighting them, choosing properties and customize and then setting the folder to be just a documents folder. But you can do this for the root folder of the drive. I.e where the directory is just F:\ or E:\ because the customize tab is not listed when right clicking and selecting properties for a drive in my computer.

Is there another way to change it? e.g. registry or something?

Start Registry Editor (regedit.exe)
Backup these regkeys: (as a precaution only; if satisfied with the results, you may delete the backups)

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\ShellNoRoam\BagMRU]
[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\ShellNoRoam\Bags]

Delete the above keys.
Restart windows to take effect.
