8. Windows Media Player
Learning the Basics
Windows Media Player (WMP) has grown into a pretty amazing application with multiple personalities. Its talents include playing music and video files from online sources or local drives (including DVDs), playing online radio and TV stations, displaying specialized web pages, organizing your music files (MP3s and WMAs), burning music CDs, copying and syncing to portable MP3 players, and providing a conduit to online media shopping sites. Windows 7 includes an updated version of WMP that sports a refreshed user interface, additional features, and some much-welcomed interoperability. WMP 12 has divided Now Playing and Library views into separate interfaces.
