The behavior is different depending on which tab is selected, but it works fine like described here:

No, this discussion is not about the art in the "art + details" window, which I never used or had any use for in MM2 and MM3 (when it was the movable album art panel). This discussion, like lowlander said, is about restoring the right click > view album art in the context menu under the fileview "show art with details" (see #1 in the first pic I posted in my last post).

I know what you mean! I really miss this too and always quickly enlarged album covers when looking through them. The option isn't there anymore, so I just widen the album art panel to see it larger. Not as ideal, I agree.

Maybe I'm missing it but this doesn't work for me either. It doesn't make anything larger, just starts the song.

Anyway I do see the request and I appreciate it. You guys are all great and I love Mediamonkey and recommend it to everyone :)

Single click on Art in Art & Details window should open it up.

I agree. Single click on the album art in the "Art & Details" panel has opened up the album art to a new popup window from day one. That isn't the issue here, as lowlander described succinctly:
Lowlander wrote:I don't see this in the "[Show] Art with Details" view in the Filelisting. Clicking on Artwork does nothing here. In MediaMonkey 3 right click gave View full size, whereas MediaMonkey 4 seems to have no way of doing this in the Art with Details or Art views.
emphasis added

I think people are confused here, as some are conflating "show album with details" with "art & details" and vice versa. I think JCfantasy23 meant "show art with details" that he uses to view his files. To clear up any lingering confusion, here's a picture distilling the problem (I hope):

I see what you mean now, single clicking on the art window does enlarge it :D

Hey, just upgraded to MM4 after a long hesitation... mainly I was forced because of auto-tag not working in MM3 :-?

Anyway ... on the subject of cover art display...

Any chance of having an option to return to the old way of making the "Art & Details" window show either the Current or the Now Playing? I.e. you could *right-click* and choose which one you wanted to show?

I don't really like the "Now Playing/Selected" tabs as they are now, they just take up screen space, that I'd much rather have show the image :wink:

As mentioned on the forum tabs will be reviewed for 4.1.
