I often use queue up all my files in the Now Playing and hit shuffle. This
plays all my files in a random order.

Many of my files are missing the album cover and over time i intent to add
all the album covers, in other cases the files tags are incorrect and i want
to update them with the correct information.

The only way i have found of finding that file in the library it to remember
the filename then switch to the library plane and type it into the search.
This can be problematic.

On all other media players i have used there is an option when you right
click that file it will take you to it in the library without having to type
anything into the search.

How do i do a similar thing in Media Player 11.

When you are in now playing pane then right click on the playing song and
click "Find in the library" it will take you directly to the playing file in
the library. But for your convinience when you get to that file before adding
data to it play some other song otherwise it will not apply to the song.

I don't have this option. It is not there.

There are a number of places i can click in the 'Now Playing' plane and i
have tried everywhere. These are the options i get:

PLAY (bold)
Add to> (a list of playlists)
----------
Rate> 1 Star, 2 star... n Star, 5 Star, Unrated
----------
Remove from List
Move Up
Move Down
------------
Properties
-------------
Open File Location


I dont have a 'Find in Library' in that list. It is not there.

So how do i get it there?

Windows Media Player cannot find the specified file. Be sure the path is typed correctly. If it is, the file does not exist at the specified location, or the computer where the file is stored is offline. Rav Windows Media Player 0 04-05-2004 06:31 PM
