Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit SP1

Hi again

I decided to do a rework again as the number of albums was increasing and becoming difficult to find, and I used now a folder for each band (if more than one album) and inside of it, the folders with each album with the icons. As the default slanted and stacked thumnails were very awkward for this purpose, I decided to make a tile of 2,3 or 4 cover arts (I believe Windows XP did that itself but no problem here). And also, due to Windows 7 music library options not showing most of the album arts for some reason I can't find.

(yeah not so good quality Made In Paint lol and disregard the error in the "Electric Light Orchestra" folder with AC DC art ).

Now the following would be to insert a thin frame for each icon folder, I would like if there is an automatic method or should I modify the icons again
