    Some of my music files have album art in the ID3 tag and some others don't.
    I guess they sit in the Media PLayer Library since I can see the art in the
    player.

    Could someone tell me what is the best way to transfer the art from the
    library to the ID3 tag. Thank you.

    As far as I know, there is no option to force WMP to write the album art in a
    tag.
    The only way I know is using 'paste album art'.
    You might also try the advanced editor.

    I prefer MP3Tag to do this type of a job.

    How can I access the .jpg used by WMP11? In a different post, lexios
    mentions that they should be as "hidden/system and are called Folder.jpg,
    AlbumArt.jpg,
    AlbumartSmall.jpg".

    Could not find this on my machine. The only .jpg files I could find were in
    "c:\users\<username>\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Media Player\Art Cache\LocalMLS
    with starnge names but these files are empty.

    Any other help on finding the .jpgs?

    Thanks

    OK found the solution.

    Lexios was right. My problem: I was checking the "show hidden files" button
    instead of unchecking the "Hide Protected File Systems" checkbox in the
    "Organise/view tab" of file explorer.

    Album art is sitting at the location stated by Lexios. I am using
    Tag&Rename 3.4.6 utility to embed the art to each track.
