WMP 11 Opening Page

Post A Comment

While working with Windows Media Player 11, it is often an annoying fact for many of us to see when we open it, the library window. It takes time to load the library fully, we have to switch to the 'Now playing' window to watch a video and the hassles are endless.

So what do we do to make the windows media player 11 to open up in the 'Now Playing window'. Here is a perfect and pretty easy method to do so.

Choose the shortcut( from the desktop, quick launch or start menu) you most commonly use to open up WMP 11. Now right click on the shortcut and choose Properties.

From the properties window that comes up, go to the Target option.

You will see something like this given there:

"C:\Program Files\Windows Media Player\wmplayer.exe" 

Now add the following line of code at the end of the above mentioned line in the Target option.


so that the Target option would look something like that given below (The folder where you have installed wmp11 may change).

After modifying:

"C:\Program Files\Windows Media Player\wmplayer.exe" /prefetch:1 /Task:NowPlaying

Done, Click OK.

Now open windows media player 11 again from the shortcut and see how it opens up in the 'Now Playing' tab!
