Windows Media Player has many functions, including play count, genre and album art. All of these attributes are stored as metadata within your MP3 files, and can be edited within Windows Media Player. If you wish to remove album art from your Windows Media Player library, you can do so with the “Advanced Tag Editor.” This is helpful for changing album art, or trying to fix issues with your current album art. This process works for Windows XP, Vista and 7.

Skill level:


  1. 1

    Launch Windows Media Player by clicking “Start” and then “Windows Media Player.”

  2. 2

    Click the “Library” tab and locate the music you wish to remove the album art from. Right click on the song(s) and select “Advanced Tag Editor.”

  3. 3

    Select the “Pictures” tab. Click “Delete” to remove the album art. Click “Apply” and then “OK” to save your changes.
