Is there a way to configure the links to display the Music tab for that album artist?

There are only two possible link-to options in that settings panel and I'm guessing you've attempted selecting library filter which should take you directly to the Music tab.

If that's not what you want, I would need to see a screenshot of the "Music tab for that album artist" that you want it to open to.

I already spend hours on end on social media. Might as well spare a few of those to a greater purpose here.

Hi Mayibongwe, see screen shots here: https://imgur.com/a/2hNL3lY

So, yes I tried both options and when set to library filter:
Starting at "1. Where I'm at when I click link",
when I click the link, I end up at "3. Where the link does take me",
but I'd like to end up at "2. Where I'd like the link to take me"

Is there any way of making that happen. I've only been using MB for a few months, and that screenshot #2 in the Music tab is the place I most like to be to navigate and edit my music.

Thanks in advance for any help.

Hi Henry,

I'm still not entirely sure I'm getting you right.
Is your query simply a matter of you wanting the artist-filtered tab in screenshot #3 to mirror the view in your main music tab (screenshot #2)?

If that's the case, then all you have to do is change the view of #3 to album and tracks.

Hey again Mayibongwe... yep, that's what I was looking for. Thank you. It took me a few minutes to realize that I had the Main Panel header menu hidden. Once I unhid it, I just changed to Album and Tracks. I have a lot to learn about Music Bee.

That goes for most of us. Enjoy the ride :-)
