Windows 7: WMP 12 Album Art

WMP 12 Album Art

Hello all,

I have been reading for the last hour not only here but on many different websites trying to find a way to NOT display album art in WMP 12.

I have selected the option to no longer download it.

I have deleted all the Art from my music folders.

It still leaves the place marker with the music note. I don't want the place marker with the music note! I don't want an icon at all but, I would still like to display the music in the Icon and Tile format.

I have figured out I can display in "details" view and it gives me what I want to some degree. But If I switch to Icon mode or Tile mode it shows the album art period. So I right click on the Column header and it gives me the "Choose Columns" option. So I select it, then it gives me a list of all the columns and check boxes. GREAT I thought I found it, but sadly Album Art isn't a column when viewing by Artist.

So my question is... Tho only way to not view Album art is in Details view?

I also found that if you actually select an Artist, now in the Column Header it shows a #, Title, Length Rating etc...

If you right click it (the #) you get again the "Choose Columns" option, now ALBUM ART is listed there! BUT, and a big BUT, you can not deselect it! Why is that? I have tried moving it down the list, but that is the one and only column you can't do anything with.

Any suggestions?

Thank you all.

Based from experience with different media players, the "placeholder icon" will always be present.

If the option is greyed out, it is most likely you cannot do anything with it, unfortunately.
