Access cover art in current directory structure

I have been using mp3tag for a few years now and quite pleased with it.
One feature I miss is the ability to access album art which is physically located with the track file in the same folder.
Some time ago it was possible to click on "add cover" and the folder presented was the one which contained the files whose tags I was editing.
Now, when I click, I get presented with the default directory and have to navigate to get to working folder. It is a hassle when dealing with a few folders.
I have tried, unsuccessfully, a few things in option settings.
I would be extremely grateful for any assistance in this matter

Many thanks.
I was not able to find this thread when I searched. Appreciate the assist. Works the way I need it.
