Still haven't gotten the hang of the navigation. I am currently viewing all my albums (with art) grouped by artist...When I click to view as a list it shows me the artist plus a bunch of lines below for all the albums...Is there a way I can set the main window to just display all the artists ONE SINGLE LINE EACH? Example:

AC/DC 6 albums blah blah
AEROSMITH 10 albums blah blah
Artist Name
Artist Name

Thanx M

I think this page will help: http://musicbee.wikia.com/wiki/Artwork_View

Edit: Actually, on re-reading, it may not.  I'm not sure what you're seeing.  Can you post a screenshot?

There is no artist-per-line view, but in Track Details you can set it to show one album per line.

I wish I could figure out how to attach a screenshot but I see no option for that......

finding it hard to have to scroll so many pages in the second view....seems like there should be a one artist per line view just for quick reference or navigation??

Are you using the column browser at the top of your screen?  You might try reconfiguring it show only Artist, and orient it vertically rather than horizontally.  That will give you a list of Artists down the left side of the main panel, similar to library explorer.  (The Thumbnail browser works just like Column Browser, but will show an artist thumbnail.)

You should probably also take a look at this page: http://musicbee.wikia.com/wiki/Album_and_Tracks_View

The "display first few tracks only" or "do not show artwork" options might accomplish something similar to what you want.
