    See the attached, is there any way of getting rid of the yellow folder shown round the album cover?

    ie so that the folder is just the album cover.

    Thanking you!

    The only working method I know of would be to hack shell32.dll using ResourceHacker. What you want to get rid of is the 96x96 pixel version of the folder icon.

    First you need a replacement icon. In an icon editor like Axialis Icon Workshop open the folder icon inside shell32.dll and make the 96x96 formats all transparent. Save the modified icon to a folder. (If you don't have a suitable program to edit icons I can attach an icon in a follow up post.)

    Open shell32.dll in ResourceHacker replace IconGroup 4 with your new icon and click "save as" (not "save").

    Last step replace shell32.dll with the modified version. Easiest way using Replacer . It will deal with Windows File Protection and automatically create a backup of the original file.
