Menu Bar In WMP 12 RRS feed

  • Question

  • In the older versions of WMP the menu bar could be set at the top of the screen while viewing a video.
    Now in WMP 12 it is not there or I have not found the way to put it there.
    While I am viewing a video I would like to see the menu bar.

    How can I make it appear while viewing a video in WMP 12?<o:p></o:p>

    Please reply.

  • Unfortunately that's not possible. Due to WMP 12's design, the menu bar can only be shown in Library mode, while video can only be viewed in Now Playing mode. You can however quickly switch to Library mode *and* show the menu bar by pressing Ctrl+M.

    Edit: looks like it is possible to access WMP's menu in Now Playing mode by pressing the Alt key, as Gandalf50 pointed out in this thread.
