How to unselect a song

When I am analyzing or inspecting my library the cover art of the last song played will come up. Is there any way to stop this from happening?

    Hi Stacy,

    there is no UI element that lets you change this behavior, but on OS X you can open a Terminal session and execute:

    defaults write -app beaTunes4 /com/tagtraum/beatunes/ -dict-add window.coverpanel.delay '-1'

    On Windows you can do the same thing by opening a command shell (cmd.exe) and executing:

    reg add "HKCU\Software\JavaSoft\Prefs\com\tagtraum\beatunes" /f /v "window.coverpanel.delay" /t REG_SZ /d -1

    This specifies the delay in seconds without interaction until the "screensaver" is shown. The default is 60. A value <=0 turns the mechanism off.
    It's recommend to change this, while beaTunes is not running.

    BTW: to get rid of the image, you can also simply move your mouse across the app and it should disappear.

    Thanks a lot - works great :)
    beaTunes runs on my second screen, so I can watch analysing songs.
    So I don't like to move the mouse there every few minutes.
