When the plug-in is installed, launch WMP and go to Tools
- Plug-in Properties
- Windows Media Player Plus!
- Restore Media at Startup
(press Ctrl+M if you don't see the Tools menu).
Both of you
I'm not just quoting the both of you to be polite lol.
I genuinely mean thank you to both of you as explained below:
After seeing OvenMaster suggestion I didn't want to add *another* icon to my desktop so I decided to wait for more answers and then Tim De Baets suggested the VERY good plugin.
Now I tried the plugin but it didn't play all my music automatically I still had to press play. The plugin helps as it restores your previous playlist without having to click the playlist name etc...
And then I went into the settings of my Microsoft Sidewinder X4 keyboard (it has macros which can be used to launch programs)
I then changed one key to the playlist I created so now all I have to press is one key and WMP will launch and play my music.
Thanks to Tim De Baeats for suggesting creating a playlist and launching to it.
Thanks to OvenMaster for the cool plugin, it has some cool features.
Edit: +rep for both of you One last question:
Can I create a smart playlist as in everytime one folder (i.e. my music folder gains an additional song) - WMP would automatically update the playlist I have already created.
Do you know if this is possible and if so, how do you make a playlist like this?
