The menu bar in Windows Media Player (previously known as Classic Menus) gives you access to most of the Player functions, but it's hidden by default.

To show the menu bar.

           ·         Do one of the following:

·      In the Player Library, click Organize, point to Layout, and then select Show menu bar.

If the Player is currently open and you’re in Now Playing mode, click the Switch to Library button in the upper-right corner of the Player.

·      Press Ctrl+M.


Show or hide the menu bar in Windows Media Player:
