There's a number of options you can play around with in this view by going to Preferences>Layout (1)>Main Panel>Configure Views>Artwork. From a brief glance at them, you may be able to disable that menu being shown. However, before you do that, I'd recommend updating to the latest beta (from here
) as that gives you a whole range of new options there, some of which you may prefer.
