Years of difficulty, hours of frustration trying to deal with this. When I start Windows Media Player, it starts up in Library View for a couple of seconds. Then it immediately flashes down to a minimized "Now Playing" window. I have to click "Go to Library" to get to the library view.
I operate in the Library view. I have no bleeping use for the "Now Playing" minimized window. Since I haven't started playing anything, the "Now Playing" window is a useless annoyance. I just want Windows Media Player to start in Library View.
I've posted around other help sites, and tried all the solutions. Most of them tell me to put /Task Library or /Task MediaLibrary at the end of the command line of the shortcut menu in the Properties box when I right-click the Windows Media Player startup icon.
Here are examples of this advice: http://www.sevenforums.com/music-pictures-video/224291-how-open-wmp-12-maximized-library-not-minimized-now-playing.html
I've tried all the solutions here, over and over. Nothing works. I'm using Windows 7 Professional and Windows Media Player version 12.0.7601.18150, the most recent update.
Can anyone help me to get Windows Media Player to start in Library View?
