It would be great, for me, if when you clicked on a particular track in the TOP TRACKS list that MusicBee would expand the album that contains that track. Very useful when you have multiple albums and you are unsure which one contains the track.

Would love this feature also.

On a side note, freely resizable top tracks by rating and searchable by pressing a single character would also be great.
I use many (and i mean many) different versions of a song (which are all truncated and therefore all look the same song name)and prefer the explorer view, unfortunately it's not user friendly to me.

One can only hope.  ;)

When the same title is on multiple albums MB should be appending the album name. Is that not the case?

Yes when there are multiple Titles with the same name MB appends the album name.

The issue is that when I wish to find out what album a particular song by an artist is on it's generally not possible from Music Explorer. I realize that I can use search to do this but this often results in many results unless a custom search is run. I could also find the artist and sort by Title.

I prefer the Music Explorer view and it would so much simpler to just click the song and have the appropriate album expand. Alternatively always append the album name as per the display when there are multiple songs with the same title.

I am currently working on tagging songs that are covers using information from SecondHandSongs and this would greatly expedite the process.

I Collect many different Remixes from specific songs that come from Vinyl, CD single, CD album, Digital downloads.
Them the list with the same name gets long pretty fast, that the length in the list has a maximum length doesn't help.

But this defers from the O.P. and i don't want to high jack his posting, Sorry for that.

for v3.6, clicking on a track in the top tracks panel will open the album and select the track
