Chapter 31. Playing CDs and DVDs > Using Windows Media Player

Using Windows Media Player

For most users, however, the media player of choice is the one that comes free with Microsoft Windows. Windows Media Player (WMP) is a great little program you can use for many purposes—playing CDs and DVDS, ripping and burning CDs, listening to Internet radio broadcasts, and watching video Webcasts. It works similarly to most other media players, so if you know how to use WMP, you should be able to figure out any other media player program.

tip

By default, WMP is launched in its Full mode. If you'd rather display the player without all the extraneous controls, you can switch to the more compact Skin mode by clicking the Switch to Skin Mode button—or by pulling down the View menu and selecting Skin Mode. When you're in Skin mode, a small anchor window appears at the bottom left of your desktop; double-click this window to return to Full mode.
