I know this forum isn't so much for setting file permissions and such.

.......I'm not sure if this applies to your case but might be worth a try.

If your files are in the Music folder and you access the files via the Windows 7 Library you won't be able to do what you are trying.

Access the folder direct by going to Computer and locate the Music folder from there, not via the library.

I had this issue trying to change folder icons which wasn't possible from the library but could be done from the actual folder.......

Oh dear. I was wondering the same thing thinking it must just be a simple check box or something. Now it seems though that they may have actually left it out of wmp 12!!

That is totally rubbish. I want to see my album art FULLSIZE, you idiots in ms media division!

It was in 11, why take it out!?

Windows 7 Ultimate 32 Bit
Full size album art in wmp12

I found a solution for the windows-7 32-bit version wmp12 album art problem.
Here it is:
Click the Start button and type "regedit" in the search bar and click regedit when it shows up under programs. Windows will ask permission, click Yes.
1) Go to the registry path : HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\MediaPlayer\Preferences
2) then Create a key with name "PlayerModeAlbumArtSelected" and set its "Value Data" as "0" (without qoutes) (for creating, new key,right-click anywhere inside the window and select "new->DWORD (32-bit) Value")
3) then find the key with name "ShowAlbumArt" and set its "Value Data" as "1" (without qoutes)
Now the Windows Media Player 12 will display the original AlbumArt which you had set in the song.

Personally, even though everyone will disagree, I'd like not to use Macrium Reflect or another 3rd party utility. I (for now) want to use the default Windows Backup program. My issue here is the image I'm creating is actually bigger than the files it's copying. I'd like to know if it's copying a...
