This option enables reading of subdirectories.

Favorite directory

You can enter a favorite directory here and quickly jump to this directory via File → Favorite directory or the corresponding button from the Toolbar.

If start from this directory is enabled, Mp3tag loads this (possibly empty) directory instead of the last used directory.

Cover art directory

This option specifies a default directory that is displayed when adding cover art. Besides fully-qualified path names, you can provide relative path names and use placeholders.

If no default directory is specified or the directory cannot be opened, Mp3tag opens the directory of the first selected file if it contains cover art or the current working directory in all other cases.
