Quickly adding comments to files or folders

Is there a way, either with a built-in function of Windows XP, or by using an outside program/utility to quickly add comments to a file or folder (that would show up in the comments column when using the "details view")?

I would like to use comments more often to help remember why a particular file was saved, what the project was, where I am in the process, differentiating between several versions of a file, etc.  

I realize comments can be added to a file or folder by accessing properties, and then entering the comment(s) on one of the tabs in that dialog box.  However, this is cumbersome and time consuming.  

I currently try to put info related to a file or folder into the file name, using abbreviations and hoping I can make out the information later, but this is a poor way to to do it also.

Being able to right-click on a file or folder, and be able to add a comment (or some other quick and easy procedure) would be most helpful.

Thanks for any help anyone can provide.
