    in all my files it displays my music by each mp3 file, is there a way to change this to album cover?
    I know there is screen flow but i want the mp3 icons to display the album cover only not screen flow my pdfs and docs as well

    To let Finder not show the .mp3 suffix/extension, select one .mp3 file, press CMD+I to open the Get Info window and look under "Name & Extension" for the "Hide extension" checkbox.

    As I don't use Icon View or the Smart Folders, I can't help you with the album art, though I can view my cover art in Finder, if I choose to use Icon View, but I still use Mac OS X 10.6 Snow Leopard.

    Ups, thought it would work for all, but maybe this can help? Found it via "finder hide all extensions" and a www search engine of my choice.
