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?
