Hi guys/girls,

Do you know how to change your folder on a mac. All my music is on my mac, and I will like to use the albumcovers as folder image.

I come so far, that I can see a papir with Mpeg written inside, instead of the normal blue folder icon...but I can't see the picture.

Sorry the bad english(denmark)
QUOTE Thanks

I would suggest using iTunes to browse your music instead of using Finder. All sorts of Album cover views there.

I cannot be held responsible for the things that come out of my mouth.
In the Windows world, most everything folks don't understand is called a virus.

While I'm all for the occasional custom folder icon, I agree with Bob -- that sounds like utterly pointless busy-work that iTunes makes moot.
