How-To Show All Album Artwork in iTunes 10

How-To Show All Album Artwork in iTunes 10In one of our previous articles we got you informed on the New Apple Products and the Release of iTunes 10. iTunes 10 brought us a bunch of new features and a great new view which resembles the view in Windows Media Player 12. What is NOT GROOVY, however, is the new view doesn’t show the Album Art on all your albums by default so I personally find it difficult to find what I’m looking for when browsing through the albums.  Today I’ve got a groovyTip for displaying all album art in iTunes 10 which I think most of you will find handy or at the very least, improve the UI a few notches.
