Windows 7: Album Art Size Problem (WMP12 Library View)

Album Art Size Problem (WMP12 Library View)

So, my brother was messing with the library view on WMP12 on his computer, and he hit Ctrl and Numpad +, which caused his album art to get bigger. However, hitting Ctrl Numpad - did not make it smaller again, leaving him stuck with large album art. We tried Shift F6, which reduced the album art size. However upon closing and reopening the program, it was back to the large size again.

I messed with it some more, hitting Ctrl Numpad + a few more times. After a point the art did stop getting bigger... until I hit Ctrl Shift Numpad +, at which point it continued getting bigger until I eventually stopped (it doesn't even fit three albums on his widescreen monitor now).

No combination of keys I have tried has reduced the album art size, except Shift F6, but that does not STAY small. As soon as we close and reopen WMP12, the art is huge again. Anyone know of a way to fix this?

EDIT: We figured it out. Something to do with it increasing the size the library view took up. We were able to drag it back over from the side and make the area size smaller again, so the pictures are no longer drawn massive in an attempt to fill the space.
