@adonis "Play all tracks by" follows the same behaviour as the "random album" feature, where it stays on screen to allow you to continue browsing your music collection, skip to the next song, etc.


As this has been the behaviour of the Mini Player since the beginning of time, we're hesitant to make any changes to a behaviour that other users will have become used to for many years.


Keep in mind that you can either use your Alfred main hotkey to start a different Alfred query, or the Escape key to just close the Mini Player and get on with your work once you've got your great tunes playing :)
