For many of my artists, I've got a 'singles' folder, which includes loose singles that never came out on official album releases or anything like that, and of course for some artists, this can span decades. I would like to set it so in MusicBee the little 'year' is displayed as (for example): 1999-2024, but I can't just simply right-click and edit the 'singles' album and change the year without it trying to update every file in that folder to be tagged as '1999-2024' but I want the files to keep their original years per file. Is this possible?

Looks like you can set up a virtual tag as follows:
Code
($Min(<Year>,<Album>)-$Max(<Year>,<Album>))

I already spend hours on end on social media. Might as well spare a few of those to a greater purpose here.

How would I go about displaying this? I've added it in the 'tags' preferences as mentioned but don't know how to make it display as such

You will need to customise your panel to display this virtual tag.
If you want more explicit instructions you will need to post a screenshot showing where you would like this data to be displayed.
