Windows 7: Windows Media Player always displays album art

Windows Media Player always displays album art

No matter the visualization I have selected (Even no visualization ), whenever I open WMP the album art appears.

Is there any way to stop this? Many of my songs don't have album art, so instead the big music note is displayed.

Yes. That was the first thing I did.
Only way I can get it off is to re-check "no visualization" wheneverI open it, even if it is already selected

As far as I know, visualisation has nothing really to do with the album art - its the fancy wavy lines that show when sound is played back.

Have you checked the following in the options?

i suspect the only way not to have the album art showing is to not have albumart, delete or put in a separate folder in the root folder of the album ,if its embedded albumart then use mp3tag to remove the embeded art.

The album art is hidden as part of the "protected operating system files".

Go to
Organize > Folder and search options > View
Uncheck Show hidden files, folders, and drives
Uncheck Hide protected operating system files (Recommended)

You'll have to delete the album art from each folder that has it, for it to be totally removed from WMP.
You may want to clear the library of all the music and restart WMP once you're done.

Yes, and it had no effect.

Deleted album art, but instead of displaying "nothing", as in no visualization, it displays the "no art" image

So is that what you want? or do you want nothing, no album art and no big quaver neither?
