    This is driving me crazy as I'm sure you could do this in the beta. In the
    library when you search for something and have a bunch of results how do you
    make it so when you double click ONE song it just plays that ONE and not the
    entire list of results... so pretty much where do you set PLAY instead of
    PLAY ALL to the default in wmp 11 final?.

    I'm interested in this also. In WMP 10 you could change a setting in
    dropdown menu in the library. I can't find this in WMP 11.

    This is so annoying that I would probably uninstall WMP 11...

  3. If I right click on a song in the library or in the search results, an
    option to PLAY comes up along with another option to PLAY ALL. I select
    PLAY to play the one song.

    Get TweakMP from (YES, it is compatible with v11).
    Install that. Go to WMP's Tools:plug-ins:TweakMP to run it. Set the
    double-click option to do that.

    I promise it works. I keep updating my system to do this because people
    keep asking this question. It's allllmost worthy of FAQ inclusion now. =\

    I have done as exactly as you instruct Zack. But still when I double-click on
    a song in the library, WMP11 plays the song instead of queuing it up. But
    from Explorer (file manager) the song is queued when I double-click on it.

    There's N posts about this subject along with Y posts about
    "double-click-next". You can't do this. The fact that people keep asking
    about these has simply confused me and I was therefore a confused idiot.
    I'm straight now.

    Yeah, not possible that I'm aware of. I don't recall when it was removed:
    this version had a ton of library rework, and this is likely fallout of
    those changes.

    So to clarify and remove my stupid confusion of this issue:

    * Yes, you can set double-click to play single-track only using TweakMP.
    * No, you can't set double-click to queue only. You can use
    shift-double-click to queue only, and that's about it.

    People who keep repeatedly posting about this issue should mention "Yes, I
    know this does not work in v11" because they're going to keep confusing me
    if I don't pay attention. =)

    Thanks Zach! Does exactly what I want.

    BTW: It has the option "doublelick to queue".

  8. It works, but don't touch the full screen controls !

    Turning them on seems to permanently make the controls go from sliding
    off screen a-la WMP10/11, to jumping suddenly off screen and resizing
    the video at the time it'd usually animate the slide ;-)

    This happened after changing the Animation Style, and seems
    irreversible without me checking which reg key mgiht be involved.

    In other good news, the Energy Bliss vis seems to still work well once
    WMP is restarted (it's a bit glitchy before then)

    Cheers - Neil

    *checks mail to Ed (author) about the third party Energy Bliss viz* --
    there's two versions of Energy Bliss. You *may* want to re-update Energy
    Bliss if you installed it early on. But if you're good, we're all happy.

    Thanks for the tip. Too bad this feature isn't documented and you have to
    either edit the registry or know to download a WMP add-in to get this
