Chapter 11. Managing Music (and More) wi... > Windows Media Player at a Glance

Windows Media Player at a Glance

Windows Media Player does an amazing number of things, especially when you consider it’s included free with every copy of Windows. Most people learn all they need to know by clicking on various buttons and watching what happens. If you feel like exploring, go ahead. To open Windows Media Player, click its icon on the Quick Launch toolbar, just to the right of the Start button; if the Quick Launch toolbar is hidden, you’ll find the Windows Media Player shortcut by clicking Start, clicking All Programs, and then choosing Accessories and Entertainment.

Note

In this chapter, I assume you’re using Windows Media Player version 8, which is included with Windows XP and is not available for any earlier Windows versions. At the time I wrote this book, Windows Media Player version 9 was in the wings. Although it should look and act much like version 8, you might discover some features that work differently from those described here. You can find out which version you’re using by choosing About Windows Media Player from the Help menu.
