    Hello all. Just wanted to report a "Hidden Feature" in WMP 11. When you
    have the player on shuffle and you bring up an artist or otherwise use the
    search box and play a song that appears in the results, the shuffled songs
    only come from that search result even when you clear the filter to display
    all records.

    That's not a bug, it's how WMP is designed. When you play a song by
    double-clicking it in the main Library (center) pane, WMP adds all
    currently displayed songs to a (Now Playing) playlist, and starts
    playing that playlist. When the contents of the Library pane is changed
    (such as by clearing the filter or navigating), the Now Playing playlist
    isn't changed.

    When you click the Now Playing button at the top, you should be able to
    see the Now Playing playlist on the right. If not, click the little
    arrow right below the Now Playing button, and select Show List Pane.
