If you use Windows Media Player or the Music app (Windows 8 & 10), here’s how you can add album art to a music file and update its ID3 information without needing any extra apps.
The first thing you want to do is find album art for your music and for the sake of keeping things organized, you might want to save it all to the same folder.
Right-click the album art image and select ‘Copy’ from the context menu.
Next, open Windows Media Player and go to the Albums tab.
All tracks that Windows Media Player recognizes to be from the same album, will automatically be updated with the new art once you’ve added to it.
This association is subject to the availability of the information in the track files.
In Windows Media Player, go to the album tab and select the album that you need to add ID3 tags to.
I have de/reinstalled VLC and selected the option to delete the config files, but the problem is still occurring. Many thanks in advance, Nick It also happens to me from time to time.
