Did you right click on a recognized music file (as in no .OGG and no .FLAC)?

They removed it. Hit F1 and type Advanced Tag Editor in. "Advanced Tag Editor isn't included in this version of Windows Media Player." That and the fact they ruined the Now Playing window is enough to make me switch completely over to the Zune software.

While I agree about the Advanced Tag Editor, I can't see a problem with the Now Playing window as it can be personalized to show, album art, list view as before, with or without visualizations up to full screen.

What I always did was add 600x600px versions of the album art for each cd in my collection. Then, with the old Now Playing window, the album art could be made to nearly fill up the screen. With the new version of the screen, the art stays at 130x130 no matter what.

This could change in the final release, I can see Now Playing under options, but it's properties are greyed out. Maybe more to come.
