How do i find the playing file in Libaray

    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?
