Faster way to rate media files in Windows Explorer

From what I understand, I need to go in the properties of the file, then the "detail" tab and set the rating there. Is there a faster way to do this?

"You can rate them in bulk in Windows Media Player (a bit different than this on Windows 7, but fairly similar):

In the menu select File -> Add to Media Library and choose what you want to add (probably a whole folder of media)

Let it add all your files

Navigate to the Media Library to see the media you've added and select what you want to rate from the imported media (All Music, All Video, etc)

You can then Shift + Click (sequence) or Ctrl + Click (1 at a time) the files you want to rate. Then right click and go to Rate Selected Items and choose your desired rating."
