Nothing to fix. That is the way it should be.....
The first screenshot shows you all the sub-folders under the main folder, such as Music. It shows you the " thumbnails " ( you call it album arts ) of each sub-folder.
But, once you click open a sub-folder, it shows you what are inside, namely the list of music with names.

I don't know if this helps or not but the thumbnails displayed in your first screen shot are the result of hidden files in each folder. folder.jpg is the image that is displayed as the thumbnail. If you show hidden system files you should see one in each folder along with a bunch of albumart jpg's of varying sizes. Windows media player adds those. When you actually go into the folder (your second screen shot) what is displayed is the embedded album art, if it exists, in each mp3 file. I use Mp3tag - the universal Tag Editor (ID3v2, MP4, OGG, FLAC, ...) to edit my mp3's. It will show you if there is any album art embedded in an mp3 file. If they have gone missing for some reason, you can use it to replace them.
