Windows Media Player included with Windows 7 has no menu bar visible by default. This makes it very hard to open an individual file to play like we used to using File → Open. If you are frustrated without the menu bar like me, then you can make the menubar visible in Windows Media Player 12. Here is how :
- Start Windows Media Player. You can run it using the pinned shortcut in the taskbar or the Start Menu.
- Right click on the top near where it shows Library.
- From the right click menu, choose View → Show menu bar as shown,
Alternatively, you can toggle the menubar on and off using the keyboard shortcut Ctrl + M.
