Recently the icons for my music files changed. They used to show the album picture but now they are just shown as a standard music icon. Can someone help me get it back to showing the thumbnails?

hey...this might work!

step 1: click on the folder that your music is in(just highlight it, dont open it)

step 2:on the top left of the window click on 'Organise'(its just below 'File')..then click 'folder and search options from the drop down menu.

Step 3: click the 'View' tab and untick the box beside the option 'Always show Icons, never thumbnails'....although at default it shouldnt be ticked...i tink.

good luck
