iTunes 10: Show Album Art / Artwork for All Albums

   Posted September 1, 2010 by David Kirk in Music

In iTunes 10, the album view defaults to showing the album artwork only for albums that contain more than five songs. If you want to see album art for every song, these directions will show you how to do it.

I love the album art and want to see it as much as possible. Album view in iTunes 10 is designed to maximize the use of screen space. I get that. However, often I want to see all the album artwork even if it uses up more of my screen.

Here is the default view and grouping in album view:

To view all the Album Artwork in Album View:

1. Click the View menu
2. Click Always Show Artwork

click view and then Always Show Artwork
