Hi all, its probably very simple but i cannot get my music view to my liking.

I have big icons for all my albums but when i select an album its default view of the tracks is big icons also. I need the tracks to be a list.

I've played with the music views in the config but with no joy. Can anyone help? :D

You were wight, you should set that in Music Views.
Could you tell me, what you selected for "track"?

ViewAs "List" should do the job.

I should of mentioned that its in 'shares' view that i would like the tracks as a list. Any ideas?

What is generally thought to be the best way to view your music collection?

    yes, that's the problem. the Music Views section works only for Database Views.
    For shares view we store the settings for every folder. so when you have set the option for a particular folder we will use the selected view te next time you enter.

    Generally you should Tag your files and then import your files into the database by using the Music Database dialog from config.
    then you can use the database view and plugins like Global Search to search for specific music
