Current setting has

The following to the Left in Tags

Track Title
Artist
Album
('I'd like to add a sub album for boxsets that have multiple albums in them so the name of the specific disc is in the file example the Aerosmith Box of Fire had all their Columbia albums in it but I would like to have them all in the Music be as Box of Fire but also show what specific Album it is when it is playing/ or being edited The New Judas Priest Boxset has 42 CDs and I love to be able to put the title of each disc in and have them stored under the boxset as a set)

You can't.
Download the latest MusicBee v3.5 or 3.6 patch from here.
Unzip into your MusicBee directory and overwrite existing files.

As phred mentioned, you cannot rearrange the tag order in the Tag Editor pop up.
But you can, however, do so with the Vertical Tag Editor panel - you would first have to enable it from view > arrange panels.
The source code to any of my contributions is available on the same download link as the add-ons

Having never used the vertical tag editor, I didn't know one can choose the tags to be displayed.
Thanks Mayibongwe.

Thank you both for the info I love the Musicbee database I've been using it for a few years now. I have a large about 14,000 cd collection and was struggling for a database that worked with one that large.

I must be running an older version of Musicbee as I don't have that option when I get in that function. Looks like I am running 3.06335 where do I find the most updated version? I'll have to find the updates and upload that then try'

I also having such a large collection I have to supply a list to my insurance company. I'm looking for an easy way to download the Musicbee database info into an excel sheet so I can provide that to my insurance company.

Thank You Kevin

The 3.0 series is from 2016.
I'd like to suggest to you and all others, that before you report a bug, or ask a question, please update to the latest version. The latest version can always be found in the first forum topic (Latest Version -duh!) and the latest patch update can be found in my signature.

I suggest you download v3.5 and then apply the patch. Of course this assumes you're not using the MS Store version, which can't be updated or patched until Steven issues a new Store release.
