    Angry Hidden files & settings

    I understand that any downloads from the internet are kept somewhere on the H/D. I am using Win7 (which I am new to); I also understand that WMP automatically downloads the relative coverart for each individual track that it plays.
    While WMP displays the correct coverart accordingly I am trying to locate the physial .jpg file which contains the coverart.
    I have enabled invisible files & folders to be shown and have conducted a search by the extension (*.jpg*) with no results; except for those .jpg files which are used for the personalisation feature.
    Could somone please shed some light on how to go about locating these coverart files in their .jpg format? Are hidden files shown in a particular view only?
    Or is there a setting in IE8 preventing the files being downloaded?

    The default location for Downloads is generally C: "What Ever you call you PC", Users, "Your User Name", Downloads

    For cover art check same path as above, but instead of Downloads check Music, then each album should contain the music files and Cover Art.

    To make it easier to find these folders I right clicked on "My User Name" and created a shortcut on the desktop.

    Some tip sites you should check out are:

    Windows seven Forum Tutorials

    How To Geek

    Paul Thurrott's Win 7 Supersite

    There are many others, but these are my favorites.

    The album art is kept in the same folder as the media files. In additon to setting "Show Hidden Files", you need to Uncheck "Hide protected operating system files".
