I was wishing and looking for a way to be able to quickly view all important tags and file properties in one screen.
This for the main purpose of checking if tags are filled in correctly, and to evaluate the quality of the albumart.
The best way to get something like this done is probably by creating a specific plugin, or just by simply asking Steven ;-)
Since I can't program, and don't want to bother or interrupt Steven too much, I gave it a shot to try and create this by means of the existing screensaver plugin.
I must say I am quite self-content with the result thus far. Just one hotkey click and I see most wanted information.
A few notes:
- I created it for my 2048x1152 screen, so some adjustments might be required for 1080p screens.
(edit: added 1920x1200 and 1280x1024 versions)
- Some fields in the screenshot are working only because my customized tags, your result will depend and vary on this.
- Other fields like 'Filename', 'Image Size', ReplayGain' etc. are not working at all. Maybe because of my lacking in skills, maybe because support for this is not existent or intended for this plugin.

Since my custom tag use will very likely differ from anybody else's, here's a small tutorial how to personalize:
Open the .xml file in an editor (e.g. notepad++)
Suppose that after Track Title, you want your 'custom tag 5' named Title Sort Order displayed.
In that case, in line 29 change "C3 Work" to "C5 Title Sort",
and in line 30 replace "Custom3" by "Custom5".
Also you can add or remove lines, and change positions of all fields through their x and y values.
