Need "Audio Format" file property information in Windows 7 that was available in WXP.

In Windows XP, if I viewed the Properties of a WAV file, I could see the "Audio Format" of the file (i.e. "PCM").  However, in Windows 7, I cannot see this same information.  Is it possible in Windows 7 to see this data "natively"?

I have attached two screenshots of the properties windows for the same WAV file, one from WXP and one from Windows 7.  I have already looked at all information presented in the Windows 7 properties window (Details tab), but cannot see the same data.

Thank You in advance to anyone who can provide some insight!

I know of no way to do this "natively." There is a great free program called GSpot Codec Information Appliance
