WMP 12 File Type In lower Right Hand Corner On Album Art.

Hi I have in my WPM 12 library where if an album has songs with two different file types they get there own album with the file type on the icon (for example I have Circus Animals by Cold Chisel shown twice one being m4a file type and the other mp3 file type)

I have before fixed it so the file type is removed and all songs go in the one album but have forgotten how to do.
So hoping someone knows how to change it

Thanks Kevin

Tried that but it only works for file/folders and not in Media Player.

I can't remember whether I used a tweaking tool or a setting in Media Player and as I usually set the folders view to default when changing from show hidden files etc I did not think it would work but it did not hurt to try.

Thanks Kevin

Here's the fix and it's simple if you look properly. I only found it today via a google search.

Right-Click on Choose Columns in header and make sure "Include file extension in default sort order" is not checked.



Oh it's not my library but from the page I found the fix.
